No Spec Work. No Crowdsourcing - but what if the proceeds go to charity?
I know everyone's feelings regarding spec work & crowd sourcing but what if it was all for charity?
I came across this site - The Big Picture | Corbis Design for a Cause Contest - and you have to design a poster in support for a charity of your choice using one or more images provided by Corbis.
The outcome if you win, is the charity you designed for gets a £1000 donation...
However, corbis obviously get their images out there and the designer gets their work featured in various magazines / exposure blah blah blah.
Is this just Spec work / crowdsourcing or is it a bit more morally acceptable to designers?
