Can I do a web presentation ?

Hi all!

Any format is fine, as long as we can view the final results - so a web presentation, Photoshop image or a video should all be fine.

We ran a similar contest last year, and had a huge range of different entries - from short written testimonial stories, to videos, to a comic strip, to a playable video game :slight_smile:

This year there are two categories for the prizes - “Best storytelling” requires some form of text, but that can be accompanied by any other type of content. “Most creative” requires some kind of video or image in the entry.

Can you do two entries… one for each category?

@SpaceStockFootage Absolutely! See the T&Cs for full details - you can submit one entry per person, per category.

@nikoletta21 Sure - that sounds great! Just make sure the text is readable in the final entry, whichever format you choose.

@JeriTeam That should be fine :slight_smile:

@ProMotionSquad-1 Sure - you can access logos here, if you need them. Just make sure you check out the Brand and Trademark guidelines first.

It’s great to see so many entries coming through - we received our 100th entry late last night.

For Authors from Russia, what are the conditions and prizes?


I’m a photoshop action author, my idea plan is to make a video combined with some of my photoshop actions, but I’m not clear enough to speak English

Hi @Eka_Design! That should be fine - there’s no requirement to have spoken narration over the video, if you can tell your story in images and text :slight_smile:

@joebakal I’ll check to see if there are any specific conditions. The contest is open to authors in any location that you can use Envato from (there’s a list of restricted regions here), so there shouldn’t be any problems there. However, we currently can’t pay to any Russian financial institution - so the first place winners for each category would need to provide valid payment details to claim their cash prize before Dec 31st.

Thanks for the answer. But I didn’t understand him. I am an Author from Russia, my payment details are in Russia. Competition “for all authors”.

hello from brave Ukraine!
i send my photo collage to your competition today! do you receive it? can you say - is everything ok with it?

That is awsome

Hello → I will not participate in this competition because of three things:

1). my “story” is too personal. I would keep this in private.

2). We have hard times on planet earth → there are people who need this money more than me I believe, so I won’t try to win them → and I can do this thanks to Elements earnings.

3). About 2 or 3 years ago I won one of the Envato price (it was about $900) - and I remember this, I’m grateful and I think it’s good to give this opportunity for those who never won anything.

Envato became a big part of my professional and private life, helped me a lot. I hope we can continue this for next decade.

Good luck everyone :slight_smile:


Hey Envato!
Are you kidding me?
Уou don’t pay royalties to Russians, even to non russian financial institutions like payoneer, and ask for a story about how invato helped me to achieve creative success? Have you completely lost your conscience?
