How much work can be asked for in a project (scope)?

Projects on crowdspring work best with a clearly defined scope of work. Clients will also see more creatives participate and receive more entries in their project if the scope of work is appropriate to the award amount. (Look below for a list of our scope guidelines for each project type when posted with the minimum award amount.)

Clients who need additional work beyond the scope guidelines we’ve outlined below have several options:

1) Increase the award amount
2) Add a second (or third) award or...
3) Negotiate with their awarded creative for additional work.

The bottom line is, the creatives must be compensated for their additional work. It’s only fair.

(Please note, projects that cross multiple categories should be posted as separate projects).

Of course, every project is unique and some categories are more complex than others, so if you have any questions about the appropriate amount of work to request in your project, just ask our friendly customer service team.
