Your burning app design FAQs, answered.

All the design files you need to build your app. Your app 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 App Design Contest does not include any coding.
Lots of ideas! If you’re looking for inspiration, explore 99designs for fantastic examples of mobile apps created by our design community.

Bring as many specifics as you can, too. Include mobile app designs you like, brand details, layouts, wireframes, product specifics, developer requirements and any other specifications that would affect your design.

The more you give the designers, the better they can design an app for you.
Yes. If you have any specific images (like a logo) that need to be included with your app design, 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.
A 99designs App Design Contest comes with all of the image files you need to make your mobile app look like a million downloads. However, it does not come with any coding. You will need to work with a mobile developer to create the code to get your app live.
 
We can recommend our partner Udacity Blitz if you need help getting your app coded.
Absolutely (and we love it when that happens)! When your app 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 your winning app design.
We guarantee that you’ll get a great app design 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 app 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 app 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 do!  Pro for Agencies allows you to tap into a design solution that gives you all of the top-notch talent you’ve ever wanted.  With Pro, you'll have access to vetted designer matching, design-savvy project management, plus privacy & white label tools.  Request a call from us today.
We offer a 100% money-back guarantee within 60 days of payment on all app 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 app designs submitted to your contest.
