We hope everybody had a great Independence Day, as we know that many of us spent the 4th hunkered down in our houses due to Hurricane Arthur. Here at PicsArt, we had a lot to celebrate, as we look back on a week that had some really inspiring posts on our Daily Journal and art from our users that you don’t want to miss. We released a new clipart package, held 3 awesome art contests, and posted some really thought provoking articles by our resident photography experts, Chris Corradino and Lou Jones. Meanwhile, users shared some really stunning original art work, from which we are showing some of the best and most popular here. Catch it all below!

Most Popular Photo of the Day on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+
The most popular Photo of the Day on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ last week was this highly creative and original tree face by Sandra (@poca386), which earned 1224 likes and 63 shares on Facebook. From the bicycle eyes to the enormous straw hat, this tree stump turned human face had a lot of personality and is standing proof of Sandra’s exemplary imagination.
With the stroke of midnight on Monday (PST), the final votes were cast and the winning drawings from our Vampire Drawing Challenge were officially ready to rise from their coffins and claim their place among the top 10. The top vampire of the week was this entry drawn by Leah Taylor (@leahtaylor), who put a stake in the heart of the entire competition with an impressive 868 votes.
Over the weekend, users took up PicsArt’s Bokeh Masks to see who could come up with the most stunning photos for the Weekend Art Project, our weekly art photography contest. Finishing in first place with 938 votes was Lukas Haubnet (@lukas-haunbner-7), who finished just 23 votes ahead of second place.
This past week’s Recipe Graphic Design Contest was as much a challenge to the chefs in our community as it was to the designers. The one entry that had users lining up for a taste above all others, was this Soya Tofu Loaf by Annie (@anni-j03), which won 646 votes.

I am often asked: What is the most important factor for producing better photographs? There are multiple theories: talent, expensive equipment, Photoshop, “getting closer”, but my pat answer is access.
