After months of planning, I’m pleased to introduce our $41,000 web developer competition on Nettuts+ and CodeCanyon. Officially launching today, we want you to…build something! Do a kick-ass job, and you’ll win everything from cash, to an iPad 2, to the 3DS, to a seemingly never-ending string of subscriptions to amazing online services.

$41000 Web Development Competition April 4th – May 20th

How’s it Work?

  1. Build an item…

    We’re searching for kick-ass, premium plugins and mobile components at the moment. Think about what you personally have found yourself in need of. A Joomla events calender? A WordPress membership system, perhaps? What about a Titanium boilerplate to jumpstart your iPhone app?

    Well, get started building it!

  2. Submit to CodeCanyon

    When your item is complete, submit it to CodeCanyon. If you don’t yet have an author account, that’s okay; take a few moments to sign up for a free account. You have until May 20th to get your item in!

  3. That’s it!

    You’re done! Once your item is accepted on the marketplace, not only will you profit from each sale, but you’ll also be automatically entered into the competition! To the best comes the spoils!

Prizes!

Prizes

We’ve gone all out in this competition to bring you prizes from some of the best companies in the world, including MediaTemple, GitHub, RuleFM, SpiderOak, Usability Hub, and many many more.

Terms and Conditions

  1. Entry is open to all Envato marketplace authors.

  2. Envato editors, managers, and reviewers may not participate.

  3. All winners who reside outside of the United States may receive cash-value for some of the prizes, including the Nintendo 3DS and iPad 2.

  4. All submissions to the Plugins and Mobile categories will automatically be entered into the competition.

  5. Authors may submit multiple entries, but may only receive one place in the competition.

  6. Promotion commences on 4th April 2011, 12:01 AM EST , and final entries close on 20th May 2011, at 11:59 PM EST . Winners will be chosen within a maximum of two weeks from the competition’s conclude date.

  7. Winning authors agree to sign a contract which confirms that their item will be sold exclusively on CodeCanyon, under the author’s account, for a minimum of 6 months.

  8. The winner will be notified by telephone or email, and will be mentioned on both Nettuts+ and CodeCanyon postings.

  9. All payments and prizes will be made within a maximum of 1 month from the conclusion date of the competition.

  10. Winners will be determined by the Envato marketplace management team, exclusively. All decisions are final.

  11. All questions, comments, and concerns should be directed to Jeffrey Way at jeffrey[at]envato.com.

So there it is. Competition begins…now! To the best comes the spoils! Feel free to chime in within the comments if you have any questions. Otherwise, good luck!

Yay :) I’m preparing my item for submission. I think the time to 20 may will be to polishing it. Just one question: If I submit my item now, will it be judged on its’ submit state or the final date state (since I’m going to do multiple updates).

Hope the best for all CC developers :) :)

Great! We’ve been looking forward to this since the original announcement and have some things prepared already, but with that date of May 20th, we’ll have plenty of time to polish everything :)

Good luck to all participants! :)
