Holiday Photo Card Challenge: Special Prizes

It’s Minted’s biggest and most influential stationery challenge of the year the annual Holiday Card Challenge! Our customers say that their jaws drop when they get a Minted card in the mail. That’s exactly the effect we were looking for from you, our immensely talented Minted Community, and wow did you deliver! A huge congrats to all the winners!  

This year, for the first time ever, we announced the First Time Winner Holiday Collection Award. We awarded an artist with the opportunity to launch a line of holiday cards on to a designer who has never won a Minted challenge before.

Congrats, Colleen Tracey! We will choose 2 more holiday card designs from Colleen for a total collection of 5 holiday cards launched on Minted.

Winter Wonderland Holiday Card Challenge: Special Prizes

We took out the eggnog for our non-photo holiday card challenge! This is a fun challenge that Minted artists typically enjoy, because it allows their talents as a designer to shine, whether they are an artist, illustrator, typographer or graphic designer. We were looking to help customers express a broad range of styles; there is no one Minted “look”. Our artists had fun, took risks, and designed holiday cards that they would be excited to send themselves. Congratulations to all our special prize winners and runners-up!
