We want to base a contest on YOUR Envato Market content

#In an effort to better help our authors promote their work and simultaneously allow customers to discover great content and experiment using different kinds of content, we want to give away one of your items for free and create a contest around it. But we need you to opt-in with individual items!


What we’re looking for

We’re looking for high quality and potentially customizable content across some specific categories across GraphicRiver, VideoHive, ThemeForest, CodeCanyon, and AudioJungle.

See the full list of items/categories we’re looking for!

How we’ll use your item

By signing-up to participate (and if we select your item), we will begin by contacting you to confirm we’ll be using your work and to outline the event/contest. We will then:

  • Give your item away for free on Envato Market for a very limited period depending on the contest. This will typically be between 1-2 weeks.
  • We will provide prize money to the contestants/winners of the contest on your behalf at no expense to you!
  • We will create and oversee a contest either in our forums and/or blog to promote your item, the free item giveaway, and the contest.
  • We may promote you and your item(s) in our forums and/or our blog and/or social media and/or via tailored marketing e-mails to customers.
  • We typically allow you to help judge and select the winners of the event.
  • We may continue to promote your item/portfolio after the event has concluded in the form of blog posts, videos, social media etc…
  • We will return your item to the previous/normal item price you set and will remove the free download option/button at the end of the free giveaway period.
