Envato's Most Wanted

We’ve put a $3,500 bounty on the heads of Envato’s most wanted file type – PowerPoint Templates on GraphicRiver.

We’re running a “Best Item” contest where authors of all PowerPoint Templates submitted between 29th January and 5th March will have a chance to win the following cash prizes:

  • $1,000: 1st Place Prize
  • $750: 2nd Place Prize
  • $500: 3rd Place Prize
  • $250: 4th Place Prize

We are also offering a $1,000 bonus prize to the author who submits the most unique & innovative template! We’re looking for a presentation here with a unique style, concept, or niche that really stands out from the crowd in a great way.

What We’re Looking For

We’re looking for very well designed PowerPoint templates that meet the following additional requirements:

  • Templates should make use of master slides / layouts
  • Templates should provide alternate color schemes
  • If the template includes animations, a version without animations should be included as well
  • All charts/graphs should be fully editable wherever possible, and have a default color palette matching the template
  • All graphics should be vector based / seamlessly scalable

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 rules in full!

Here are the key details:

  • Submit your items on or after Friday, January 29th and before the competition closes on Thursday, March 5th at 23.59 AEST time.
  • The winning files will get a share of $3,500.
  • Envato staff to vote on prize winners.
  • 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 two (2) “Best Item” prizes.
  • An item can win the “Unique/Innovative” bonus prize in addition to a “Best Item” prize.
  • All winners will receive the much-desired “Won a Most Wanted Contest” badge.
  • Eligible templates must meet all requirements outlined in the “What we’re looking for” section above
  • Final eligibility on entries for prizes is determined by Envato staff.
  • Prizes are payable only via PayPal or Moneybookers/Skrill.

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!

Little confused about the submission date. It says
Submit your items on or after Monday, November 24th and before the competition closes on Monday, January 26th at 23.59 AEDT time.

So If my file is not reviewed within 26th January. And if it reviewed and get accepted in 27th January where I’ve uploaded the file in 24th January. Will it be considered as contest entry??

What will be considered? submission of an item within 26 JAN or Accepted and submit the form within 26 JAN.

Thank you.
Yes. We go by the date/time uploaded. If however your item is rejected then you need to re-submit before the contest closes (26th Jan at 23:59pm AEDT)
