Would conversion of already accepted item into ghost is eligible for this competition?
Good question bro :-)

Yes you can convert another existing item from any of our other platforms for this event.

Envato's Most Wanted  

Just over 2 years ago Envato helped launch Ghost, one of the all time best blogging platforms by becoming the number one provider of Premium Ghost Themes.  Since then Ghost has grown tremendously along with many new features, including Custom NavigationPost cover imagesAuthor archives, Tag archives, Previous & Next Post Links, and Code Injection to name a few.

This time around we’re back with another amazing opportunity to win big cash prizes taking Ghost Themes to the next level!

The Opportunity

$7,500 in prize money is up for grabs for Envato’s most wanted file type – Ghost Themes on ThemeForest.

For this event we are running a “Best Item” contest where authors of all eligible Ghost Themes uploaded to the marketplace between August 7th and October 16th will have a chance to win awesome cash prizes!

What You Can Win

  • The 5 best Ghost themes win $1,000 each
  • $1,500 bonus prize for the best magazine/editorial experience. Plus a featured slot on the Ghost Marketplace.
  • $1,000 bonus prize for the most submitted/approved Themes
This means that a single Ghost theme author could win up to $3,500!

What We’re Looking For

We’re looking for Amazing, Innovative Ghost themes that push the envelope beyond the traditional blog.  To be eligible for the contest your theme should include:
  • Dedicated and styled Author Archives
  • Post Cover Images
  • Dedicated and styled Tag Archives
  • Themes with ‘placeholder’ text or images in the live preview will not be eligible.  For example avoid using unrelated dummy images and “lorem ipsum” text.
  • An amazing item description that captures the buyers attention while providing detailed informational copy.
For the best Magazine/Editorial experience bonus prize, we’ll be specifically looking for that special ‘wow’ factor, such as taking Ghost styling and layouts to the next level by providing a unique concept, niche, editorial or magazine Style that will make your Ghost theme a “must have!”

What We’re Not Looking For

Just like with any platform, there are some areas of saturation that tend to dominate the offering. Here are some of the things we are not particularly interested in this time around:
  • We’re not looking for Personal blog only themes.
  • We’re not looking for Portfolio-centric themes.
  • It’s okay to still have a blog and or portfolio, but just not as the main theme of your item.
As a general rule, if we already have many of one type of Ghost theme already on ThemeForest, we are probably looking for something else!

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 everything in full.

Here are the key details:

  • Upload your items to Envato Market on or after Friday, August 7th and before the competition closes on Friday, October 16th at 23.59 AEDT time.
  • The winning files will get a share of $7,500.
  • All winners will receive the much-desired “Won a Most Wanted Contest” badge.
  • An author can enter as many items as they wish.
  • Multiple submissions from the same author must be different to one another.
  • An author can win a maximum of one (1) “Best Item” prize.
  • An author can win both a “Best Item” prize and “best magazine/editorial experience” prize for the same item.
  • Final eligibility of entries is determined by Envato staff.
  • Envato staff to judge “Best Item” prize winners.
  • Envato & judges retain the right not to award “Best Item” or “Bonus” prize(s) at their sole discretion if they deem appropriate levels of skill have not been met.
  • Prizes are payable only via PayPal, Moneybookers/Skrill, or Payoneer.
  • Only new items uploaded to the site within the contest time period are eligible.
  • The entry deadline is based on the date of the final submission/resubmission leading to the item’s approval on Envato Market. Not the date of final approval.
We’ll announce the winners a few weeks after the event closes, and send out the prizes several weeks after that. So, let’s get started.

How to Enter 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 forum thread.
And that’s it. Good luck!

Sorry for the confusion. I had this correct the first time I posted the winners announcement, but over the weekend the Market Blog went down and Media Temple restored from an older back-up which means the post was gone. I re-wrote the post but in haste I mistakenly awarded the wrong Swift prize. Thanks for catching that!

All fixed now :)

Hi there, mobile app developers on CC, just wondering if anybody won this contest: http://codecanyon.net/forums/thread/envatos-most-wanted-8000-for-mobile-apps/174282?page=1&message_id=1261947#1261947
It’s been over 20 days since it was closed and we have not seen (or maybe we missed it?) any post about winners, nor got a notification email saying either we won a prize or not.

Check out the winners here!
