Envato’s Most Wanted – $1,000 Reward for the First 40 Signage Submissions

Posted: 11 May 2012 07:32 AM PDT

Envato's Most Wanted

We’re putting a $1000 bounty on the heads of Envato’s most wanted file type – Signage on GraphicRiver. The first 40 files uploaded (and subsequently approved) to the Signage category each get $25 (with a maximum of 10 files or $250 per author).


In short, it’s a race to see who can quickly submit quality content based on the following criteria:

  • Date Posted: May 10, 2012
  • Prizes: 40 winning files will get a share of $1,000 of prizes! 40 x $25 “cash” prizes are payable ONLY via either PayPal or Moneybookers/Skrill). Not only that, all winners will receive the much-desired Most Wanted Bounty Winner Badge
  • Maximum Prizes per Author: 10
  • Closing Date: June 7, 2012 (12 p.m. Central US Time)
  • Files We’re Looking For:
    • Billboard poster/ad designs
    • Vehicle wraps
    • Real Estate Signage
    • Food/Restaurant Signage
    • Retail Store Signage
    • As a general rule of thumb – “Signage” is any kind of sign or advertisement that’s larger than a flyer/poster.

File/Contest Requirements:

  • Multiple submissions from the same author must all be different to one another.
  • Normal GraphicRiver upload instructions apply
  • By entering this contest, you MUST sign and agree to keep any WINNING entries online for a minimum of 2 years: See form for full details. This form MUST be completed once your item has been APPROVED on GraphicRiver if you wish your item(s) to be eligible for Envato’s Most Wanted
  • DO NOT post submissions to this thread. We will be keeping an eye on the category instead to see submissions.

Where Files Should be Submitted:

Print Templates > Signage

It's as simple as that! The first 40 files to be uploaded (and subsequently approved) based on the above requirements win! Please note that we have some more specific rules to outline and clarify:


Good luck! :)

New CodeCanyon Category: Interface Elements

Posted: 11 May 2012 03:00 AM PDT

Until recently, if you were looking for interface elements on CodeCanyon, you’d have to go trawling through the “Miscellaneous” category. Well, the marketplace team have just fixed that.

The new Interface Elements category also has more detailed subcategories as well including Menus, Slides, Tables, Buttons, Accordions and Other. Hopefully this will help CodeCanyon buyers better find what they are looking for.

New GraphicRiver Subcategory: Loyalty Cards

Posted: 11 May 2012 12:01 AM PDT

Josh Sprague let us know in the forums that Loyalty Cards are really taking off on GraphicRiver at the moment. So we created a new subcategory for them inside Cards & Invites.

Now that you know they’re popular, why don’t you get cracking and submit some yourself while the space is relatively uncrowded! And check out some of Josh’s favorites on the forum link above.

Featured Profile Image: DzincStudio

There are almost as many approaches to creating a profile image as there are authors. Some focus on showcasing artistic skills, others prioritize with slogans and company information. Some show their personal photo, while others display abstract forms. This one belongs to DzincStudio.

The empty studio makes me think of potential – room to create. The green “Purchase” button reminds me that I’m in a marketplace. And the smiling finger puppet reminds me of the fun and creative guy that D’zinc is.

Have you come across a creative profile image recently? Let us know in the comments!
