pictures of happiness

This weekend, get happy! In honor of this Weekend Art Project, we want you to capture a moment of joy and share it with the PicsArt community. It could be the instant before someone blows out their birthday candles, a surprise visit from a loved one, or a simple attack of the giggles. Whatever joyful moment you choose to capture, share and submit your images by tagging them with #WAPhappy. 

Capturing and conveying an emotion in a photograph can be tricky. It requires you to be mentally present, to snap the shutter at exactly the right moment, and to have an understanding of composition. Whether you choose to capture a smiling face, a jump for joy, or a playful moment, we want to see the images that bring a smile to your face. Find something that brings you joy, capture it, and submit your images for a chance to win.
