We reached our deadline and this event is now over!

Envato's Most Wanted

We’ve put a $4,500 bounty on the heads of Envato’s most wanted file type – TypeEngine Themes on ThemeForest. How do you collect? Be one of the first 10 to have a TypeEngine Theme uploaded and approved. What’s the reward? We’ll hand out $400 per TypeEngine Theme.

We’re also running a Best Item Contest (voted by the Envato community). Authors of all TypeEngine Themes submitted between, September 23 and December 2 will have a chance to win a $500 bonus cash prize.The winners for the bonus prizes will be chosen by you the ThemeForest Community. Here are a few of the rules:

  • Authors who successfully submit an item to this Most Wanted event have a chance to vote for the winner.
  • Authors will receive a message with details on how to vote at the end of the Most Wanted event.
  • Authors cannot vote for their own item. (If you do, your vote will not count.)
  • If an author submits more than one item, they do not get another vote.
  • Voting will be open for seven days.
TypeEngine is the “WordPress” of digital publishing. It’s a platform that allows you to easily create iPad/iPhone-optimized magazines and news apps for Newsstand.

To help get you started developing TypeEngine themes, there were 2 Live Training sessions with the masterminds behind TypeEngine:

It’s a Race and Contest!

This Envato’s Most Wanted is a race and 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 the rules in full!

Here are the key details:
  • Submit your items on or after Monday, September 23 and before the competition closes on Monday, December 2 at 12pm Central US time.
  • The winning files will get a share of $4,500 of prizes! That’s 10 x $400 and 1 x $500 bonus prize.
  • All submissions during the event are eligible for the Bonus Prizes, not just the first 10 winners.
  • Envato community to vote on entries/winners.
  • For the first 10 prizes: each author is allowed to win two prizes.
  • TypeEngine theme must include a minimum of 6+ article templates.
  • Prizes are payable only via PayPal or Moneybookers/Skrill.
  • All winners will also receive the much-desired Most Wanted Bounty Winner badge.
  • Bonus prize winner will also receive a “Won a Contest” badge.
We’ll announce the winners a week or two after the event closes, and send out the prizes two or three weeks after that. So, let’s get started. To be in the running, follow our procedure to the letter!

How to Submit Your Items

What to Do After Your Items Are Approved

Once your items have been approved, do the following as soon as you can:
  • Complete the Most Wanted Entry Agreement. By doing this, you agree to keep any winning entries online for a minimum of two years.
  • Post your approved entries in this thread.

It’s as simple as that! The first 10 files to be uploaded (and subsequently approved) based on the above requirements win. Good luck!

Not to worry! Both training sessions were recorded by TypeEngine, so you can watch and re-watch them anytime :)

I would start by watching the second & most recent training session here:

http://typeengine.net/new-theme-developer-workshop-video-available/

The initial training session covered similar ground, but had a much more extensive Q & A section, so it may fill in any gaps if you still have unanswered questions after checking out the first link above:

http://typeengine.net/theme-developer-webinar-recording-is-up/

If you still have any questions after that, feel free to post them here! We’ll also be posting a written TypeEngine tutorial on Tuts+ in the near future, so stay tuned.
