      No, this is not spec work.

      You design an app screen and if we like it, we'll give you a book that will help you bring it to life. The app and the design is yours.

      The reward is clearly presented. There’s no promise or allusion that more compensation will come if you win.

        It wouldn't be spec work if every entry received a copy. Competitions are spec amigo. Gotta weigh the associated risks with a "we'll pick a concept" format. Just my opinion.

          They never said they're building the app. They said you get the book so (if you want) you can.

          This isn't spec work.

          Competitions are not all spec work. If you're required to design screens with the promise that if your design is chosen, you'll be given the job, then it's spec work. If they're giving something away and the terms are very clear up front, and they're not taking ownership over your work, it's not spec work.

            The key to that being, ownership of the work generated isn't transferred or used in any way.
