It’s a Contest!

  • All winners will receive the much-desired “Won a Most Wanted Contest” badge.
  • An author can enter as many items as they wish.
  • Multiple submissions from the same author must be different to one another.
  • An author can win a maximum of one (1) “Best Category” prize and three (3) Bonus prizes (That’s up to $4,000 in total!).
  • A single item can win multiple prizes.
  • If there is a tie for ‘Most Items Submitted’ the prize money will be be shared equally.
  • Eligible items must be related to the prize categories, and meet all above eligibility criteria.
  • Final eligibility of entries is determined by Envato staff.
  • Envato staff to judge prize winners.
  • The quality of the templates, experience, design, functionality and overall relevancy to the contest and prize categories will be key criteria in “Best Item” judging.
  • Envato & judges retain the right not to award Best Item & Bonus prize(s) at their sole discretion if they deem appropriate levels of skill have not been met.
  • Prizes are payable only via PayPal, Moneybookers/Skrill, or Payoneer.
  • Only new items uploaded to the site within the contest time period are eligible.
  • The entry deadline is based on the date of the final submission/resubmission leading to the item’s approval on Envato Market. Not the date of final approval.
