2017 RELIGIOUS CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY CARD CHALLENGE: TOP 10-1 WINNERS

Written by Christiane Pendarvis

When we kicked off the Do You Hear What I Hear? Religious Christmas Photo Card Challenge, our second faith-based design challenge, our goal was to showcase spiritual aspects of the holiday season — from scripture greetings to faith-centric images — in a fresh and innovative way. We asked Minted artists to create religious designs across a broad range of styles, from traditional and classic to modern and edgy. As usual, Minted’s global community of artists surpassed our expectations. I’m delighted to present the 10th through 1st place winners!
