Winners of Minted competitions also win their own Minted Store - giving them a platform to share and sell their work with no need to manufacture, ship, or provide customer service.
a supportive creative community
Our community is the heart and soul of Minted. Offering support, feedback, advice, and a "pay it forward" culture to all, it's a welcoming space for talent to flourish and thrive.
