There is no penalty for using stock images. As long as a design meets Minted’s threshold and any stock images are used in a way that is unique and imaginative resulting in work that is truly new and unique, it is eligible for selection and will be considered equally alongside all other entries. Designs that do not meet Minted’s threshold are not eligible for selection (this includes top-voted designs). Each design will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis, utilizing the information that the artist provided on the Challenge submission form.
