Winners Announced! The Most Incredibly Outstanding Templates.

As most of you know, ThemeForest hosted a fierce competition in January. Our authors competed against one another to win $300 – as well as some helpful promotion on our sister-site, NETTUTS.

After much thought and deliberation, the winners have been selected! Trust me when I say that this wasn’t an easy task – by any means! The quality of the templates this month has far surpassed anything that ThemeForest has previously seen. So without further ado, here are the best ten site templates of January, in no particular order. A huge congratulations goes out to the winners.

And there you have it! We considered many factors when making our choices.

  • Practicality: How “real world” is it?
  • Uniqueness: Does this template stand out among the others?
  • Sales: How many sales has this template made, per day?
  • Construction: Does the template validate and follow best practices?
  • Options: Did the author supply different CSS “themes” for each template? Has extra value been added?

Though no one factor cemented our decision, each was considered when deciding. To those of you who weren’t selected: Just remember – we had an EXTREMELY difficult time making our selections. All of your templates were crafted superbly; but unfortunately, we were only able to select ten.

Once again, congratulations to the winners! Wonderful work.

So..until next time!
