Hey guys,

We are looking for new mascots to represent our future banner ads and would like your help. If you are an aspiring artist, we want you to create a mascot that would be a great representation of Crunchyroll. The best ones will be chosen to appear in our future ads. Your artwork needs to be original and cannot represent anything that's currently licensed.

Please submit all entries to contest@crunchyroll.com and let the creativity begin!

Deadline: Monday, March 19th.

*By submitting your original artwork, you are giving us the rights to use your entry in all print, electronic, and broadcast media, and to edit it as necessary.

Why hire someone to do work, when you can get people to do it for free?

Not something I condone. This is basically a spec-based design competition and not to mention the lack of mention of any prizes.


What is spec work?

Basically, spec work is any kind of creative work rendered and submitted, either partial or completed, by a designer to a prospective client/employer before taking steps to secure both their work and an equitable fee. Under these conditions, a designer will often be requested to submit work under the guise of either a contest or an entry exam on actual, existing jobs as a “test” of their skill. In addition, the designer normally unwittingly loses all rights to their creative work because they failed to protect themselves by means of a signed binding contract or agreement. The client/employer often uses this freely gained work as they see fit without fear of legal repercussion.

Why is spec work unethical?

The designer in essence works free of charge and with an often falsely advertised, overinflated promise for future employment; or is given other insufficient forms of compensation. Usually these glorified prizes or “carrots” appear tantalizing for creative communicators just starting out, ending with encouraging examples like “good for your portfolio” or “gain recognition.” The reality is that they often yield little extra work, profit or referrals. Moreover they often must sign a contract unwittingly waiving their valuable creative rights and ownership of their work to the ones promoting this system. A verbal agreement is ineffective in protecting the rights of the designer in a court of law. As a result the client/employer will often employ other designers using similar unprincipled tactics to change and/or resell the creative work as their own. This also promotes the practice of designers ridiculously undercharging themselves in the hopes of “outbidding” any potential rivals, devaluing both their skills and those of the graphics industry in the process. Promoting this method encourages some clients/employers to continue preying on uninformed creatives for menially valued labor.


From No! Spec: http://www.no-spec.com/faq/

A better solution would have been to post up a 'work available' posting and invite aspiring artists to submit their portfolio. Then get the chosen artist with your favorite portfolio to do the mascot art.

For all of you complaining about a lack of a prize, exposure as an artist is a pretty bit prize. Professional artists usually do not have a 9-5 job., unless they are working for a major studio (comic or cartoon). And most artists are freelance which means you get jobs by getting exposure to the world at large.

You may not think its much to have your character be the mascot for CR, but this is an international community here as well as the staff having an ear/eye in Japan (from the looks of things).

So I will think of a character and email it. Getting it put on the site will be a good enough prize for me.

How can you call this YOUR art when they have the right to even EDIT it?
How can you even claim that you have designed their logo for them when you're surrendering all your rights of your art to someone else?
Technically it's not yours anymore...
