This event is now over. Winners announced!

Envato's Most Wanted

We've put up $2,500 in prize money for Envato's most wanted file type - Motion Graphics with Presentation-Style Previews on VideoHive.

We’re running a “Best Item” contest where authors of all eligible Motion Graphics items uploaded to the marketplace between March 10th and April 7th will have a chance to win awesome cash prizes!

What You Can Win!

  • The 5 Best Items get $500 each!
  • All 5 of the Best Item winners will additionally be featured in a marketing email campaign to tens of thousands of buyers!
  • One top winning item will be chosen to receive a coveted "Featured File" spot on the VideoHive homepage!
  • All winners will receive the much-desired "Won a Most Wanted Contest" badge.

What We’re Looking For

We’ve recently elaborated on our item preview policy for Motion Graphics to allow for presentation-style video previews. In fact, not only do we allow it, we’re here to challenge you to make the best presentation-style preview videos yet! We’re looking for new Motion Graphics items that take their preview video to the next level and showcase their amazing items in an equally amazing way.

Presentation-style preview videos can contain mixed media and assets, highlight key information about the item and clips, and show examples and mock-ups of the motion graphics in action as they might actually be used (e.g. overlaid with other footage clips).

Viewers should be able to get a clear sense of the usefulness and quality of your item simply from watching the preview video. That being the ultimate goal here, items will be judged solely on quality/effectiveness of the preview video.

Additionally, in order to be eligible:

  • Motion Graphics items must contain at least 10 individual clips/elements. Simple variations such as alternate colors to do not count toward this total.

For some examples of great presentation-style previews, check out the article on our Help Center.
