Hey everyone, don’t worry as I said we know the footage queue is a bit long right now, we’ll be waiting for all the entries to come through before we proceed :)

The important thing is just to fill out the entry form as soon as your item is approved on the market.

We reached our deadline and this event is now over!

This particular Envato’s Most Wanted is now over. We typically wait a week or so to make sure any held/resubmitted items are processed before starting the judging. We’ll then announce all the winners, and the winners the will receive their prizes a few weeks after that (please do not contact us about status of prizes).

If you have an item in the review queue please message me to let me know, and once it’s approved add a link to this thread. Don’t worry, we know the review queues are a bit longer than usual right now and we’ll make sure your submissions get processed.

If you have had an item approved on the market and haven’t already done so, be sure to sign the entry form. Good luck! :)

Does brush animation counts in? Such as this one: http://videohive.net/item/paint-brush-transition-reveal-pack/8079190

Yes, something that has a hand painted look would count as well.

Hi! I have a question! “Hand Drawn” style should be 100% After Effects (shapes or vector)? Or may be used a real hand-drawn techniques, not After Effects… as it was in my project. There all hand-drawn elements it was is rendered in Quicktime + Alpha… http://videohive.net/item/whiteboard-explainer-cartoon-toolkit/8987314 ?

Hey FlicFlac, ideally your template items will be as editable/customizable as possible, but if your After Effects project uses some rendered elements that’s perfectly okay here, as long as the project has a hand drawn style :)

However items made only of rendered motion graphics clips should be submitted to the Motion Graphics category, and wouldn’t be eligible for this particular event.

I forgot to ask: what about length? It’s 2:00 mins as always?

Nope, no length requirements this time. From announcement:

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 :)

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.

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.
