Hey! I was thinking… Themeforest and other marketplaces have competitions all the time. Why not Videohive?

Lets say we get a Theme and authors make project files that suits the Theme. We can have custom overlay for the Thumbnails and preview image.

The winner is author with most sales in a week OR videohive can set some kind of voting page just as AeTuts does it.

And author HE GETS A BADGE ! :D

Anyway i would like to see how can Inlife with his flares strike the Theme. How can Bboykoma apply his 3D to the theme, how can D3luxxxe use his Digital Clean style, how can UniqueFX make a Logo Reveal, how can CarlB use his typographic effects on this and so on…

That would be nice :)

Sounds fun, but I dont think having it as most sales would be a good idea, since every author has their own amount of followers, etc

A voting page would be great

I can see now the web masters are facepalming due to the voting page ^^

why not have the competition judged by a panel of industry professionals?

Hell yes! Let’s get a competition going.

As far as judging by sales,not so sure about that,but i could use some completely fresh ideas to work with.

That competition would be interesting to see! Felt is right, it should have a board of professionals judging the quality and stuff. Great idea!

Trying to make some peace between the pros and the stock worlds? ;)

Good idea, but judges should only and only be industry professionals, like felt said.

I agree, the voting should be done by professionals in the industry. This is such a great idea as it’ll give everyone a different taste of something and we can add this to our demo reels (;
