Thanks for the comment Dan! We are very sensitive about the ethics of spec work. I am, after all, one of those designers who has invested considerably in my career. We don't run "contests" for that very reason. Everyone who contributes to our campaigns does so because they care about the cause it is supporting and because they want to make work that they feel matters and be a part of a community of people that feel the same way, not for the money or for a single prize. We are aware of and concerned about the precedent crowdsourcing sets but for social impact design, there is very little money to begin with and it is our goal to setup a sustainable model that supports artists and causes and builds community.
