    We opened a req for an artist that can build us a game UI (buttons, text boxes, frames, etc) for $150. It has been open 3 weeks now and we have had 5 separate artists apply totaling 6 submissions but we haven't received any submissions that meet what we're looking for yet.

    If you're interested in the $150 payment please visit the site, view the asset request details and submit a piece of spec work that shows us what your menu idea is made of!

    Here is a link to the Asset Details

    Hint: You can get extra details about what we do and don't like by looking at the GALLERY and reading our comments on each previous submission.

    Was the original post edited - this looks like an offer of $150 for menu work.

    That it does, but on the site linked to, artists submit their attempts and they choose the one they like best. Sounds like spec work or a contest to me.

    Also, the prize isn't big enough to make this worth bothering with.

    Sorry, didn't see these until now. We worked for a good year trying to get the right kind of artwork based solely on portfolio submissions and had very bad results. We moved to this "interview" style approval process about a year ago and have had tremendous success. It's not for everyone, so if it's not for you that's fine. It's not exactly a contest-style, however. It's more like trying out for a team.
