Global artists unite for annual Camp Minted conference: Day 1 Recap

Written by Julie Black

Nearly 200 Minted artists gathered under the neon (yet tasteful) lights of the JW Marriott Hotel in Las Vegas this July. From watercolor workshops to inspirations sessions teaching that “some people just won’t like you,” Camp Minted 2019 was a jam-packed three days of creativity, learning, and camaraderie. We’re holding onto that Camp Minted feeling for as long as possible, starting with a visual summary of Day 1.

The energy on Day 1 was contagious as Minted artists poured in from as far as India and South Africa and as close as the local area. Regardless, each and every artist rushed from session to session to, yet another, session, determined to absorb as much knowledge and inspiration as possible. We’ve included only a few of the many highlights from this Day below.

Congratulations! Now that your design has won a Minted challenge, your next step is to write a product description. Product descriptions appear in the bottom right of each product page under the “Details” tab. To match the high quality and luxe standard we hold our designs to, your product descriptions must also be impeccable. Don’t let this scare you, though — each description should only be a couple sentences at most! Find helpful advice for writing product descriptions after the jump.
