Do more of what you love.
This year, we’re challenging our Envato Elements author community to work together to help our library grow to 1 million items. It’s a milestone we think will help propel Envato Elements into its next phase of growth, empowering you to do even more of what you love. Did we mention we’ve got $30,000 in prizes to give away?!
What does doing more of what you love actually mean?
Doing more of what you love doesn’t just mean creating more content. It’s about doing more to create the future for all the things you love.
The doing that means more time to travel the world, more freedom to work from anywhere, more flexibility for family or friends, more creative possibilities for tomorrow and more of that ‘being your own boss’ feeling – it’s the kind of doing more that we all love.
This year, we want to take a giant leap forward. We’re closing in on a major library milestone that we believe will position Envato Elements for its next phase of growth, growing author earnings and the freedom to do more of what you love.
So, if you’re looking for a challenge in 2019, this is it.

What kind of items are we looking for?
We’re looking for items that are on-trend and bring depth, diversity and quality to the Elements library. The kind of depth that helps subscribers complete their projects over and over again. Every author contributes to the goal but here are a few suggestions:
- UX/UI templates, fonts, mockups, illustrations, graphics
- Authentic, diverse and inclusive photos with real people
- Stock footage with diversity and inclusion themes and authentic scenes
Frequently asked questions.
What kind of items are you looking for?
We’re looking to grow the library to 1M items with high quality, on-trend items. We’re not looking for items from five years ago (unless they are really really good and don’t look dated). Generally, this means we’re after items you’ve created in the last two years or items you will create in the next few months.
How do I qualify for prizes?
In order to qualify for prize draws, you need to complete your pledge. Authors who complete their pledge in a calendar month will be eligible for the draw in that calendar month. For example, if you complete your pledge by April 5th, you will be eligible for the prize draws at the end of April.
If items are rejected or disabled, you will need to publish new items toward your pledge. These reviews could happen after you have selected/published items to Elements. We’ll do our best to let you know how you are tracking toward your pledge target but as always, the more attention you pay to ensuring your items meet the content requirements, the less risk you have of them being removed.
How long do I have to complete my pledge?
You have until 11:59pm AEST, Friday 31st of May 2019 to complete your pledge and qualify for prize draws.
Can I change my pledge target number?
Yes! If you would like to update your pledge target, you can reach out to us via a support ticket and we’ll update your pledge target number.
Can I pledge more than once?
You can only qualify for one pledge prize draw per month. If you complete your pledge target early, you may submit a new pledge (as long as it meets the pledge criteria mentioned in the Terms).
What are the prizes?
We have $30,000 in non-cash prize giveaways (like gear, travel prizes and other cool stuff) for this campaign. We also have some added incentives we hope will motivate you to pledge and publish. We’ll be announcing prizes over the course of the campaign so stay tuned for details!
How many items should I pledge?
The pledge number is up to you but there is a minimum to qualify for prizes. That number is your total published items from the past 90 days plus 2 items or 10%.
For example, if you published 100 items in the last 90 days, your minimum pledge number to qualify for prizes would be 110 items. This is the number you would be committing to publish before May 31, 2019.
Or, if you published 1 item in the last 90 days, your minimum pledge to qualify for prizes would be 2.
Remember, all items must be approved and meet the Elements quality standards.
