The Winners For The Best Storytelling Submission:

1st Place – HushSounds

Congratulations to our 1st Place Winner in the Storytelling category, HushSounds, who shares his story about how his love for music and finding Envato Market broke the monotony of his normal 9-5 job. An added bonus of HushSounds work is the accompanying soundtrack to his story, which really brings it to life.

My love for music breaks the monotony. I come across two peculiar words in a video. What is this magnificent phrase that repeats itself, why does it repeat itself? These two words are: 


 What the heck is Audiojungle?

 In that moment I type the phrase into google. I contemplate how this MUST be a collection of nature’s most exotic creatures and their calls – no. I click the link. It’s not a jungle, BUT 

An oasis.

2nd Place – SemiColonWeb

Web & Code Author, SemiColonWeb, wrote a beautiful poem exploring the theme ‘Imagine’, where they talk about all of the things that Envato has helped them achieve in their career such as creative freedom, customer success and even learning a new language.
