Yes. We believe that it is beneficial for Minted employees and contractors to enter the challenges to exercise their creativity and to understand the artist’s perspective by 'walking a mile' in our community's shoes.
Though they are able to enter the challenges and receive recognition for placing in the top 30, they are not eligible for the cash prizes for placing in the top 30. This ensures that no funny business ever occurs. Like all of our artists, they do receive commission payments on net sales of their design and they may receive Editors’ Picks.
Fun fact - we love to hire Minted artists! More than a few members of our staff have applied for jobs after having discovered us by entering Minted Challenges.
