Envato's Most Wanted

We’ve put a $10,000 bounty on the heads of Envato’s most wanted file type – WordPress Directory & Listing Themes on ThemeForest. How do you collect? We’re running a Best Item Contest (voted by Envato staff). Authors of all WordPress Directory & Listing Themes submitted between May 26th – August 8th will have a chance to win the following cash prizes:

  • $2,000: Most Innovative / Original Directory Theme
  • $2,000: Best Business Directory Theme
  • $2,000: Best Classified Theme
  • $2,000: Best Job Board Theme
  • $2,000: Best Social Directory Theme (eg. dating, reviews)
WordPress themes must have the following features to be considered:
  • Listing & Members Management.
  • Payment Options & Memberships.
  • Search & Filtering.
  • Location / Maps (if applicable).
  • User Reviews.

Any extra features that fit within a Directory & Listing theme will help with winning the Category prizes! For example: BuddyPress & Forums, Multilingual, SEO, Social Networks, etc.

Here are some examples of the type of files we’re looking for:

It’s a Contest!

This Envato’s Most Wanted is 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 Monday, May 26th and before the competition closes on Friday, August 8th at 23.59pm AEST time.
  • The winning files will get a share of $10,000 of prizes!
  • Themes must include the minimum features to be considered (see above)
  • Envato staff to vote on entries/winners.
  • An author is allowed to convert an existing item from their portfolio
  • An author can win multiple category prizes (for different items)
  • If only 1 entry is submitted to a ‘Best Item’ category this does not automatically mean it will qualify to win the prize.
  • Final eligibility of the themes will be determined by Envato staff.
  • Multiple submissions from the same author must be different to one another.
  • Prizes are payable only via PayPal or Moneybookers/Skrill.
  • All winners will receive the much-desired “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!
