Hi @loghmanmaroofi8 We’re specifically looking for testimonials for purchases prior to October 25. This is simply to avoid anyone having to purchase a new item to enter this giveaway. Thanks for understanding.


You mean here? where I am writing this?

And what are christmas related items? a link to that category would be helpful.


Hi @webnesters! Correct, please add/write your testimonial in the thread you’re looking at right now. Just click the “Reply” button below and post it. Here are some examples of a similar event we ran.

It’s any marketplace, any category, as long as the item is Christmas related. e.g. a vector file of a Christmas tree on GraphicRiver, a Christmas/holiday song on AudioJungle, or a picture of Santa Claus on PhotoDune etc…

Hope this now makes sense and good luck! :slight_smile:

This kind of blows for those who have not anybody ordering or any family alive to celebrate Christmas with, and then it also kicks out those who may not believe in Christmas for one reason or another and it may seem that the company as a whole has become somewhat religious-based to one religion and that is all you are accepting, or… you are discriminating against those who haven’t purchased before any Christmas theme stuff to do so now for next year’s contest. So which is it? Religious reasons? discrimination reasons? or marketing ploy?

Please do not misunderstand, and I am not looking for sympathy either, just explaining something… I’ve been a member for 4 years and All family members, including offspring, are all deceased, besides my parents and their siblings, I am the oldest, my siblings were all younger as young as 20 yrs my junior. I am all there is. So celebrating Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Halloween isn’t holiday’s that are feasible for me. Thus the reason I do not do anything or produce anything for those specific holidays. Which sucks because it knocks people like me out of a contest that sure would be cool to try and win!

Anyways, best regards and good luck to you all!


Hi @rbroganis, thanks for writing and for the feedback!

This event is simply based on a type of popular content that typically sells well this time of year during the holiday season. Exposing content is not only a good way to help authors sell those kind of items but also help customers find content that they may be looking for. From time to time we will experiment with events based on different themes, different marketplaces, and different content types. This one just happens to be based on Christmas and the holiday season. We’re also running a similar event based on any content from AudioJungle right now for example, and we have run an all-encompassing testimonial event previously also.

If there’s a specific holiday and/or content type that you feel would be worth promoting for authors/customers that has value, please feel free to let us know via a support ticket so it can be passed along to the right department for future consideration. Thanks for understanding and for the feedback! :slight_smile:


That’s understood, however, it isn’t one winner $500.00 credit… it is
10 winners split $500 credit which is $50.00 equivalent… most projects
will eat that up in one purchase. Get my jist?


@rbroganis Just an experiment with prizes, we try to mix it up. :thumbsup:


###Our deadline is now over! Many thanks to everyone who entered!

We’ll declare the winner on Friday this week (US time). In the meantime, we’ll lock this thread. Come back at the end of the week to see who won! Good to luck!
