We had an AMAZING response from authors and we received almost 800 item suggestions and opt-ins are now closed. Thank you so much to everyone who submitted suggestions! We will be showing you each free item in this thread (as well as on our official event page that we’ll launch on December 1). But for now, you can sign-up for e-mail alerts below:
Be sure to come back on December 1 when the fun will begin!
Wow, we’ve had such an epic response to this, it’s been hugely encouraging! Thank you so much to everyone who submitted item nominations! We’ve had such a terrific response that I’m going to close this invitation early. Opt-ins are now officially closed!
I’m making a start on contacting authors whose items have (and will) be selected. Please do not reveal whether you have (or haven’t) been selected. It will ruin the element of surprise. Thanks for understanding.
Stand-by for a separate thread soon which will be the official thread to follow that will let you sign-up for Gift of Giving e-mail alerts and to find out what each item will be each day.
All I know is that December is going to be an awesome month and all because of you guys. Take a bow!
Many thanks to LoveThemes for putting together Tips for Getting through the ThemeForest Review Process. If you missed it first time around on his personal blog, it’s an essential read if you are new to ThemeForest or are having problems getting your items approved. The article is now available via the Envato Market blog with a few updates.
Awesome article, Scott/LoveThemes, a great way to give back to the ThemeForest community! Enjoy your new “Contributed a blog post” badge!
If anyone else is interested in writing for our blog, please feel free to get in touch with ideas and suggestions via my profile page.
Question: Can we change our nomination? I’d like to nominate one my newer releases instead of the one I chose previously. Thanks in advance for answering.
Hi MBS! The easiest thing to do is to submit another item. But note that an older item with proven sales/ratings might get you a better chance of being selected. We’re ultimately looking for users’ “best items” that they’re willing to give away.
Can I vote for all of them? If I vote only for one, I feel I’m doing something wrong against of others.
I admire your philanthropic heart, halfdata! One vote per member only unfortunately as I’m sure you can appreciate. If you’re having trouble sleeping at night however, you could always vote and then make a donation to the other charities you didn’t vote for.
Ultimately, whichever charity gets selected, it’s the kids that will come out the winner.
Hello everyone! Some of you may already know about our Christmas Song contest we’re running on AudioJungle right now. But a big part of that event will involve our entire community.
We’re ultimately going to be selling, for a very limited time, the Top 10 Christmas Songs from our AudioJungle contest, as an “album” (sold as a “Music Pack” on AudioJungle) that you can listen to (but also includes a standard RF license). The difference however is that all proceeds from sales of that “album” will go to a children’s charity.
Vote for a Children’s Charity
Instead of selecting the charity for you, we thought it would be great for our community to vote for which children’s charity you would like to ultimately support. If you were wondering, we chose children’s charities because it ties-in with our overall theme of Christmas – a time of year that is often a great time for children, or when we can always do more for children around the world.
We did a little research to find three children’s charities that not only have excellent values, visions, and missions, but are charities that all have excellent reviews, ratings, and reputations.
Charities to Choose From
The three charities to choose from are:
About: The mission of Make-A-Wish International is to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. We are dedicated to making every eligible child’s wish come true.
Save the Children
About: Save the Children invests in childhood – every day, in times of crisis and for our future. In the United States and around the world, we give children a healthy start, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. By transforming children’s lives now, we change the course of their future and ours.
Feed the Children
About: Feed the Children exists to end childhood hunger. Around the world, we provide nourishing meals every day to more than 350,000 children. We believe that everyone can work together to create a world where no child goes to bed hungry.
Please vote for the charity you would like the Christmas Song event to support:

Sincere thanks in advance if you are willing and able to take part in this unique and worthwhile event!
scottwills saidTell me how to edit my post? Or do I need to create a new one?
art-siberia saidNo, watermarks are not necessary for this contest. In fact, now that I see your entry above with a watermark, could you post your entry without a watermark, please? Thanks so much!
watermarks to protect against downloading should be placed?
Hello! Send me a link to the new image via my profile page and I’ll update your original post. Thanks!
Yes Scotty, that’s the explanation I need.Sorry, I thought I read and understood all though I didn’t.
You’re welcome! And no problem at all, these are all good questions that everyone has been asking. You don’t know how excited I am to start seeing/hearing all the entries come in!
CrazyDiamondSound saidYou can create multiple edits/variations for your item as per normal guidelines. But for the purposes of the contest, and should you win, we will only be considering (and using) the vocal version. Hope this helps.
Can I make multiple versions of the song? With vocals and without vocals, short and full version? Or only need one version of the song?
Sorry, it’s not 100% clear for me.Do you mean we can upload a Christmas ‘Song’ together mith instrumental variations even if it’ll be the song for the contest, right!?
Here’s what our announcement says:http://marketblog.envato.com/competitions/win-share-750-christmas-song-contest/
“Can I include an instrumental version with the submission? Yes, but this is optional.”
So to be eligible for the contest you obviously need to include a song with full vocals. If you want to include anything else with it, then that is optional and at your discretion.
Hope this helps clarify. Best of luck!
