2018 Holiday Photo Card Challenges: Second Place Winners

Written by Katherine Philpot

As the General Manager of Minted Holiday, I live, work on, and dream about the holiday season all year round. As we near the end of the 2018 Holiday Photo Card Challenge, we can’t help but reflect on all the hard work and skill Minted artists have brought to their submissions again this year. This year has been full of exquisite design truly worthy of Minted’s 10-year anniversary.

Today we announce the well-deserved 2nd place winners of the 2018 What a Bright Time Non-Foil-Pressed Holiday Photo Card Challenge and the What a Bright Time Quickfire Foil-Pressed Holiday Photo Card Challenge. Please help me in congratulating Angela Marzuki and Kristy Kapturowski of Hooray Creative!

Angela Marzuki’s “Holiday Garden” is a unique take on seasonal florals, evoking a mood that’s striking anytime of year. As an active member of the Minted community since 2011, the Illinois artist has consistently created one-of-a-kind designs, and we’re always excited to see what she does next. It’s no wonder she was nominated for the prestigious Designer of the Year Award at Camp Minted 2018. Beautiful work, Angela!

Kristy Kapturowski of Hooray Creative orchestrated a gorgeous palette of wintry hues for “Lush Winter Foliage,” made all the more impactful highlighted with foil pressing. Also a longtime Minted artist, the Philadelphia designer has pioneered a number of innovative designs over the last eight years. Because she’s fearless about trying her hand in various product categories for Minted, she was a rightful nominee for the Well-Rounded Award at Camp Minted 2018. Congrats, Kristy!


Katherine Philpot is Minted’s VP and General Manager, Holiday, overseeing the cross-functional effort to bring holiday cheer to all of Minted’s customers every year. She lives in San Francisco and comes from a family that (amazingly!) loves the holidays even more than she does.

Stay tuned! We’ll continue to announce Minted Holiday 2018 winners in the Minted Community > Winners section of Julep.

* Please note that we will keep the Challenge page hidden until our final winners’ announcement. At that time, you will be able to see your final score and ranking on the Challenge page.
