THIS OPPORTUNITY HAS NOW EXPIRED AND IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE

Envato's Most Wanted

We’re putting a $1000 bounty on the heads of Envato’s most wanted file type – Illustrator Actions on GraphicRiver. The first 40 files uploaded (and subsequently approved) to GraphicRiver each get $25 (with a maximum of 4 files or $100 per author).

Examples of What We’re Looking For

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

  • Date Posted: April 12, 2012
  • Prizes: 40 winning files will get a share of $1,000 of prizes! 40 x $25 “cash” (payable ONLY via either PayPal or Moneybookers/Skrill).
  • Maximum Prizes per Author: 4
  • Closing Date: May 10, 2012 (12 p.m. Central US Time)
  • Files We’re Looking For: Illustrator Actions that automate the creation of dynamic and dazzling graphical content! Our sister-site VectorTuts+ has a great tutorial on how to create Illustrator Actions if you’re not sure how to create them.

File/Contest Requirements:

  • Files MUST be submitted to our AddOns > Illustrator > Actions category.
  • Multiple submissions from the same author must all be different to one another.
  • You are NOT allowed to recreate existing Illustrator Styles and submit them to the Actions category.

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

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:

Never knew there as an Illustrator Actions category on Graphic River! This must be a relatively new category?

No, it’s always been there. The first file in there was submitted in 2009! :bigsmile:

Wow! To be honest I never knew much of Illustrator actions or even the fact that they were there, unlike Photoshop actions. Even though I use Illustrator now and then I’ve never used any actions! Only Photoshop. I’ll have to look into this a bit more i guess.

Nice.

Might have a go too. ;)

Funny thing, Actions. I often create them for my professional work to do (boring) repetitive things mostly, but in terms of creating dazzling graphics, graphic styles seem to be an easier option to both create and apply?

Off-topic slightly, but is it allowable to create both an action and a graphic style that create the same exact effect and submit into the two separate categories?

No. But what you CAN do is create both and include them in ONE submission, either in Styles or Actions. And if you submit them to Actions within the next 4 weeks you will of course be in with a chance of winning some bounty. Arrrrrrrrr! (said in best pirate voice)
