Announcing the Special Prize winners from our Pencil it In Quickfire Photo Calendar Challenge ! Customers come to Minted for beautifully-styled photo products, and they love that our 12-month multi-page calendars can start at any month and allow their beautiful photographs to stand out. We looked to you, our talented community of artists, to create fresh and unique designs that Minted customers will be proud to hang on their walls all year round. We are so excited we were able to refresh our photo calendar assortment with this challenge too– this was our first photo calendar challenge in 5 years!
