Each year Minted hosts our highly anticipated holiday photo-card competition in search of the best holiday card designs. The results blew us away! Independent designers from all over the world stepped up to the challenge—we received an incredible 4,103 submissions from 481 artists. Thank you to everyone for participating!
Today, we’re happy to officially celebrate our last Special Prize winner—we had to keep this one under wraps as we waited for our magazine advertisements to come out for the holiday season!
Merry and Bright Award: For the card that would look best in a magazine advertisement—bold and highly visible, but extremely unusual and innovative while still conveying the holiday spirit.
Lindsay blew us away with her “Peaceful Watercolor” design. It strikes the perfect balance of being bold and eye-catching, but also calm and serene. We love the holiday spirit it conveys, despite an untraditional and non-holiday color palette and the modern, askew placement of the photo. We featured this design in our magazine ads this year as a foil card (foil version here). And check it out below in a lovely ad featured in Martha Stewart Weddings. Congratulations, Lindsay, beautiful work!Comments Off
