On February 1st, we announced an enormous scripting competition on CodeCanyon with prizes equaling $6200. You now have just one week left to enter!

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 plethora of fantastic scripts and components, across all of the categories.

How Do I Enter?

Quite simply! To enter, prepare an item (PHP, JS, ASP.NET, or Java) of your choice for CodeCanyon, and once it has been submitted and accepted on the site, leave a comment here with a link to your item. That way, we can track it! That's all! Then, on March 1st, 2010 (CST), my review staff and I will filter through all of the submissions and choose the best three of the bunch!

Remember that, at this time, we're only accepting PHP, JavaScript, ASP.NET, and Java related items.
