Minted is a design community founded on meritocratic principles. We believe that artists should have opportunity based on the quality of their work, not who they know, where they live, or what hours of the day they like to work.

In honor of the creative community which makes Minted what it is, we are proud to announce our first annual Minted Design Grants.

Three grants of $4000 each


Qualifications: Applicants must be currently enrolled full-time in an undergraduate or graduate art or design program. (Proof of enrollment will be requested from finalists).


Qualifications: Anyone may apply, with the exclusion of those applying for the Student Grant.

We are centered around a global community of designers and artists. Minted conducts ongoing "Design Challenges" for holiday cards, wedding invitations, art, party decor, and other fine printed products. These competitions are open to all designers and artists. Winners receive cash prizes, commissions on the sales of their art, publicity actively generated by Minted's PR team, and the camaraderie and learning of a supportive community. In the past 4 years, Minted has changed the world of graphic design by using competitions to surface talent and level the playing field. We've dramatically changed the design quality consumers have come to expect.
