I’m extremely excited to announce our first ever CodeCanyon competition. For those unfamiliar, Envato recently launched its newest marketplace, focused specifically on selling high-quality scripts and components for PHP , JavaScript, ASP .NET, and Java. As we’ve only recently launched, we’re hoping to build up our repository with a host of fantastic scripts and components, across all of the categories.

We’re launching this new marketplace with a bang; we have over $6000 worth of prizes to giveaway to three talented developers.

How Do I Enter?

What Kind of Item Should I Submit?

We’ll that’s entirely up to you! That’s where you get to be creative. With that said, you’ll want to think of an item that will appeal to a wide variety of buyers. Ask yourself, “what sort of script or component – that’s not widely available around the web for free – have I often found myself in need of? Remember that, at this time, we’re only accepting PHP , JavaScript, ASP .NET, and Java related items.

FAQs

When is the deadline to enter?

The competition will officially end on February 28th, 2010 at 11:59 PM, Central Standard Time. However, we do hope that you’ll submit before that date.

Are all items accepted on CodeCanyon?

No. You’ll first go through a review process, similar to all of our other marketplaces. It’s possible that your item will be rejected, in which case, it won’t be considered.

How Will you Judge?

We’ll consider many factors when determining the winners: overall sales, innovation, how much it appeals to a wide variety of buyers, etc.

Who Will be Judging?

The CodeCanyon review staff will collaborate to determine the winners.

The Grand Prize is simply ridiculous! At first, I thought the numbers were for each place, respectively, then I noticed all of those go to the winner.

Good luck coders. :)
