Envato’s Most Wanted: Micro Niche Themes (Part 2)
On Themeforest Market, Opal WordPress is one of the faithful theme providers and almost customers are familiar with it. We always follow up Envatos’s contests and make great attempt to join. With an excellent result of the first contest they are extremely excited when receiving many loads of amazing theme submissions from Themeforest authors both old and new. Really this is a big inspiration for them to hold “Most Wanted, Part II” contest with a total bounty of $15,000 making it the biggest event on Themeforest ever!
This contest widens to all platforms on Themeforest including WordPress, HTML, CMS, eCommerce, Tumblr, Ghost and Muse. Therefore, if you didn’t have a chance to join the first contest, this is a good opportunity for you to try it on and maybe luckily you can win some great prizes as well.
The topic of this contest is Micro Niche Theme – a theme designed for practical real life purposes, not abstract or generalized scenarios. With several million visitors each month, ThemeForest is bursting with opportunity here as many people are looking for something specific that meets their needs and expectations. This contest will last between 17th March and 4th June, so all of you hurry up to join and win one of 12 cash prizes including 2 Best Item Prizes and 10 Micro Niche Category Prizes. The first contest, Opal was lucky to receive 2 precious prizes including 3rd Place and one of the 10 first author submitting 1 theme “Exist Multi-Purpose WordPress Theme” applied all their requirements.
