THIS EVENT IS NOW OVER! WINNERS ANNOUNCED SOON.

We’ve just put up $4,000 in prize money for Envato’s latest most wanted item type – Birthday Songs on AudioJungle!

Did you know that “Happy Birthday” is reported to be one of the most popular songs in the world, and has been estimated to bring in more than $2 Million in license fees each year?  Of course, licensing the use of the traditional “Happy Birthday” song in a video or production can be very complex and costly, often out of reach for everyday folks like you and me.  That’s where you come in :)

We think everybody deserves to celebrate their birthdays in style, and with your help we want to make AudioJungle the go-to destination for finding fresh, original songs with music & lyrics all about birthdays.  So we’re running a “Best Item” contest where authors of all eligible Birthday Songs uploaded to the marketplace between June 4th and July 16th will have a chance to win awesome cash prizes.  

What You Can Win!

  • $1,500: 1st Place Prize
  • $1,000: 2nd Place Prize
  • $750: 3rd Place Prize
  • $500: 4th Place Prize
  • $250: 5th Place Prize

Plus:

  • All winners will receive the much-desired “Won a Most Wanted Contest” badge.

What We’re Looking For

We’re looking for awesome, original songs with vocals and lyrics about birthdays.  There are absolutely no genre or length restrictions here, so you can create just about anything you want!  From a shorter kid-friendly jingle to a full on pop billboard style hit, whether upbeat and energetic or slow and sentimental, or anything else in between, just so long as it’s about birthdays it’s all up to you :)

Music items must meet the following criteria to be eligible:

  • Eligible songs must have sung vocals & lyrics themed around birthdays.
  • Eligible items must also include the instrumental version of the song.

Additionally please keep in mind our standard guidelines on submitting music with vocals & lyrics, including:

  • All vocals/lyrics should be in English.
  • Native English accents only please.  Songs with noticeably poor grammar, diction, or intelligibility will not be accepted.
  • Songs with excessive or overly complex vocals deemed to significantly diminish commercial utility will not be accepted.
  • Lyrics must be included as text in the item description.

It’s a Contest!

This Envato’s Most Wanted is a contest. And like any contest, you don’t want to be disqualified because you didn’t follow the rules. So as well as carefully following the procedure below, make sure you read them in full.

Here are the key details:

  • Upload your items to Envato Market on or after Thursday, June 4th and before the competition closes on Thursday, July 16th at 23.59 AEST time.
  • The winning files will get a share of $4,000.
  • 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 Item” prize.
  • Eligible songs must have sung vocals & lyrics themed around birthdays.
  • Eligible items must also include the instrumental version of the song.
  • Final eligibility of entries is determined by Envato staff.
  • Envato staff to judge “Best Item” prize winners.
  • Envato & judges retain the right not to award “Best Item” prize(s) at their sole discretion if they deem appropriate levels of skill have not been met.
  • Prizes are payable only via PayPal or Moneybookers/Skrill.
  • 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.

We’ll announce the winners a few weeks after the event closes, and send out the prizes several weeks after that. So, let’s get started!

Hey everyone, the resolution requirement relates to the main scene files, not the individual objects themselves.

The 1200×1200 px minimum simply means that any of the pre-made scene files cannot be smaller than 1200px in either dimension. They can certainly be greater than 1200px wide or tall, and do not have to be square.

It’s of course a good idea to provide the highest resolution possible for all the included files / elements that you are able to.

Hey everyone!

Just about 2 weeks remaining for this event! It’s never too late to break out your green screen and get shooting – but remember you’ve got until June 11th to enter your footage items for a chance to win.

We know the review times are a bit longer than usual right now, so don’t worry if your items are still in queue. As long as they’re submitted before the deadline, and you’ve filled out the contest entry form once they’re approved, you’ll be good to go :)

Best of luck and look forward to seeing what you create!

Hey Everyone!  Just a quick update here.

Now that everyone has had time to familiarize themselves with the details of the new attributes, we’ve gone ahead and removed the “N/A” option from the YouTube Content ID Registered attribute.

So when uploading or editing your music items, you must now actively select either “Yes” or “No” depending on whether your music is registered with YouTube’s Content ID system or not.

To recap:

  • If your song is registered with YouTube Content ID, you must select “Yes” for this attribute.
  • If you select “Yes”, you must also specify which platform you’ve registered your music with in the YouTube Content ID Administered By attribute.  If you selected “No” above, you can simply leave this box blank.
  • You are not required by us to register your music with the YouTube Content ID system, this is entirely your own personal choice as the rights owner.  Again if you choose not to, simply select “No” and leave the text box blank.

For more author information on this topic please see our Help Center article on Registering Your Music With YouTube Content ID.

Hey everyone! Only two weeks remaining to submit your app promo templates for this event!

Remember, we’re looking for awesome app promo templates that are able to help people truly showcase what their app can do and how it can be used. A template built with flexible and modular “toolkit” style components, realistic gestures, and high quality keyed & tracked video footage could win up to $5,000!

We’ve had some great feedback from buyers on what they’re really looking for in an app promo template, and some things you may wish to carefully consider when creating your own templates in a way that can be flexible, powerful, engaging, and appeal to a wide range of apps.

With over 1,200,000+ apps currently in the app store, and some estimates projecting over 500,000+ new apps to be launched in the next year, just imagine how many folks will be out there looking for an app promo video template that will meet their needs :)

Keep the projects coming, and best of luck!
