Last week we made some changes to improve the contest voting mechanism. If you have updated your Android device, to vote you can now view the submissions filtered by several metrics: view “Top New” tab for most voted images among latest submissions, check out the “Trending” tab for our favorites, the “New” tab shows the latest submissions, while “Top” shows the top of the list by total votes. We have also added a new “My Submissions” tab, where you can see your contest submissions, their current status, and votes.

For a week already, we review all the submissions prior to making them visible in the contest.

Haven’t you yet entered one of the regular contests of creative photography, design or drawing contests? It’s high time to look at some of our latest contests, check our schedules and join the party of the greatest artists. 

Last Week’s Conests

Vintage Weekend Art Project was a kind of time reverse into cherished retro effects and styles. The essential task for the project participants was to take an original photo composition and apply the PicsArt inbuilt vintage effect.

The week’s Drawing Challenge offered the participants to try their drawing skill in portraiture painting. We received almost 4000 photos for this inspiring challenge, yet many of them were rejected in pre-selection stage as being inconsistent with the contest rules. We feel a real delight for the fact that so many users strive to participate in the contests, at the same time we encourage checking and following the contest rules to guarantee fair contest results.  

 

In Social Media

 

This week the PicsArt social media activity analysis brought out interesting and genuine results. Tatiana’s (@melonettt) photo of rose in a glass with romantic caption ‘Love and Light… Romance in a Glass’ invaded the hearts of both Facebook fans and Twitter followers at the same time, receiving 2565 likes and 140 shares.

DESERVERS INFINITE STARS Love this app especially how in the update you can do cool art with the camera like camera brush, shape and drawing directly on the camera!

Best without a Doubt This is by far the best photo editing app I have EVER downloaded. I have used many simple pic apps on both the Apple and Android markets and NOTHING compares to the myriad of tools compacted into this one app. Most paid apps don’t even have 1/4 the amount of features here! It’s a little Photoshop for your phone and it will gloriously turn any drab pic pretty.
