Artists submit their work to a Minted Challenge during the submission phase. Once submission ends, voting begins and the Minted community of artists, customers, and fans vote on a scale of 1-5 for each submission. Anyone can vote; all you need to do is create an account at Minted.com. We then tally up the scores and the Minted Editorial Board selects their Editors' Picks. The top-rated pieces and Editors' Picks are all winners.
The voting phase begins after the challenge submission phase closes. Once voting is open, you can vote two ways:
- Go to www.minted.com/design-vote to see one large design at a time. This voting is blind, so you won't see which artist created each submission.
- Go to www.minted.com/vote and select the specific challenge you would like to vote in. You can then vote from the challenge gallery page by hovering over the “Rate A Design” dropdown over each submission, then selecting 1-5 from a dropdown. You will not have to click into each design individually.
- Go to www.minted.com/vote and select the specific challenge you would like to vote in. This gives you the gallery view where you can see all submissions at once and sort by title or artist. Click in to a specific design and you will see a rating scale to the right of the design.
