Your burning food label design FAQs, answered.

What do I need to prepare for my food label design contest?
Lots of ideas! If you’re looking for inspiration, explore 99designs for fantastic examples of food labels created by our design community. 

Bring as many specifics as you can, too. Include packaging type, dimensions, bottle sizes, designs you like, brand details, product specifics, SKUs, product photos, printing requirements and any other specifications that would affect your design.

The more you give the designers, the better they can design labels for you!
Can I use my own images in my design?
Yes. If you have any specific images (like a logo or product photos) that need to be included with your label 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.
What if I have more than one SKU or need additional label sizes/types?
Your custom label design contest includes one winning food label. If you need a second label for another SKU or a larger label for a different item in a product family, you have a couple of options: you can run a second contest, or you can start a 1-to-1 Project with your winning designer to create the additional assets.
Can I work with my designer once my contest ends?
Absolutely (and we love it when that happens)! When your label design contest has finished, you can start a 1-to-1 Project with your winning designer.
Who owns what copyright and when?
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 label design.
Which package should I choose for my label design contest?
We guarantee that you’ll get a great label 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 food label 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.
How can I protect my design contest with an NDA?
Choose “Make your contest private” from the Contest options section before you launch your label 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.
Is there really a 100% money back guarantee?
We offer a 100% money-back guarantee within 60 days of payment on all Label 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.
