Your burning email design FAQs, answered.

All the design files you need to build your custom emails. Your email design will be uploaded in the correct formats to send to a developer. Typically this means a production-ready Adobe Photoshop (PSD), Adobe Illustrator (AI), PDF or EPS files.

Plus, you’ll get the full legal copyright, so the design will be all yours.

Please note that an Email Design Contest does not include any coding, so you will have to have the email converted to HTML to upload to your email client.
Lots of ideas! If you’re looking for inspiration, explore 99designs for fantastic examples of emails created by our design community.

Bring as many specifics as you can, too. Include information about your business, the type of email you’re looking to send, dimensions, designs you like, and any other specifications that would affect your design.

The more you give the designers, the better they can design custom emails for you.
Yes. If you have any specific images (like a logo or product photography) that need to be included in your email, please submit them to designers with your brief.

Unless you request otherwise, your designer may also use stock images (purchased from a third party) in your design. If a designer uses stock art in a design, they’ll tell you which images they are and use watermarked versions of them in their entries. Once you choose the winning design, you’ll need to purchase the stock art and provide it to the winning designer so they can complete the design.
Your custom email contest includes one winning email design. If, for example, you need a second template for your email, you have a few options: you can award multiple winners, run a second contest or you can start a 1-to-1 Project with your winning designer to create the additional assets.
Absolutely (and we love it when that happens)! When your email design contest has finished, you can start a 1-to-1 project with your winning designer.
On 99designs, designers agree to upload only original artwork, so each designer owns the rights to their design submissions until you choose your contest’s winner. During the design handover stage, the designer agrees to transfer the rights, and you become the owner of the copyright of that email.
We guarantee that you’ll get great emails at any pricing level, but our higher-priced packages give you more design options and better support.

Here’s how it works: When you pay more, the prize for the winning designer is bigger, too. More experienced designers participate in your contest, so you get more high-quality designs to choose from. More options means additional time that's needed to review your designs. That’s why our Gold and Platinum packages offer dedicated managers to help streamline that process by writing creative briefs and giving your designers feedback.

When selecting your email design contest package, think about how much time you’ll have and what experience you have writing briefs and working with designers. If you're still unsure, contact us for a design consultation.
Choose “Make your contest private” from the Contest options section before you launch your email design contest. This will prohibit designers from using their designs elsewhere, and your contest will be unsearchable on the web.

This will automatically attach a standard NDA template to your contest. If you prefer, you can also upload your own NDA.
We offer a 100% money-back guarantee within 60 days of payment on all Email Design Contests, except those with a guaranteed prize and those that have entered the Final Round. You can also call us anytime to help you rewrite your brief, reopen your project to ensure you get a good result and help you pick a winning design. Remember, if we refund your contest, you aren’t legally entitled to use any of the designs submitted to your contest.
