We reached our deadline and this event is now over!! Winners announced soon!

Envato's Most Wanted

We’ve put a $5,000 bounty on the heads of Envato’s most wanted file type – Music & Band Themes & Templates on ThemeForest. How do you collect? Be one of the first 20 to have a Music & Band Theme or Template uploaded and approved. What’s the reward? We’ll hand out $100 per site template item and $200 per WordPress or CMS theme item.

We’re also running a Best Item Contest (voted by Envato community). Authors of all Music & Bands Themes & Templates submitted between, August 23 and October 11 will have a chance to win the following bonus cash prizes:

  • Best Site Template: $1,000 + Featured File of the Week
  • Best WordPress or CMS Theme: $1,000 + Featured File of the Week

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 has 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 (per category) they do not get another vote.
  • Voting will be open for 7 days.

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 in full!

Here are the key details:

  • Submit your items on or after Friday, August 23 and before the competition closes on Friday, October 11 at 12pm Central US time.
  • The winning files will get a share of $5,000 of prizes! That’s 10 x $100, 10 x $200, and 2 x $1000 bonus prizes.
  • All submissions during the event are eligible for the Bonus Prizes, not just the first 20 winners.
  • Envato community to vote on entries/winners.
  • For the First 20 prizes: Each author is allowed to win 1 x site template prize and 1 x WordPress / CMS theme prize.
  • An author is allowed to enter/submit a new site template and then convert it to WordPress or any other CMS and win both prizes ($100 + $200).
  • An author can also potentially win both “Bonus” prizes.
  • Prizes are payable only via PayPal or Moneybookers/Skrill.
  • All winners will also receive the much-desired Most Wanted Bounty Winner badge.
  • Bonus prize winners 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!

I have two files and they should be in these new categories…

I know I can’t enter to this contest but I want to change my items categories now. Because after this moment all customers who are looking for music band theme/template will only look at to the new categories and it is not fair for old music & band items… Isn’t it ??
