I have designed the desktop version smoothly. I am facing a problem on mobile version, I am working with the exact measurements and grids yet horizontal scroll is always there on the mobile preview. Is it problem with the preview?

Hmmm, I would email Instapage at support@instapage.com

Really excited to take part.

Kieran, is it possible to show you the design of the landing page prior to converting it into instapage? I think that will make sure that the designer is on the right track. What do you think?

Joshua, you can also give your input please.

Thanks

Ultimately acceptance will be based on the review team. I would advise against sharing your design with with Instapage or Envato staff. Rather you can certainly post your request for feedback here for your peers to comment :) http://themeforest.net/forums/topic/site-feedback/30

Also, look at the other landing page items we have on ThemeForest as they will serve as a great indication of what we are looking for quality wise.

I hope converting Unbounce Template would be fine. Also once the winners are announced , please post a link in this same thread. (so that all will get an email notification) I have requested this for previous events, but nobody is interested to hear.

Yes converting an Unbounce template will be fine :)
