San Francisco, CA—In light of the confusion regarding a recent photo contest held in Singapore, in which a photo that was altered using the PicsArt app was chosen as the winner, PicsArt decided to hold its own Made with PicsArt photo contest.
The company is inviting U.S. photographers to submit their images for a chance to win a Nikon 1 J5 mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera. Runners-up will be featured by PicsArt for the more than 65 million people who use the app every month.
“PicsArt celebrates creativity, and we’re making this competition about photo editing instead of casual photography. Give us your best edits using PicsArt (it’s free!). Upload your pictures to the app using the #MadeWithPicsArt Contest hashtag,” the company posted on its website. “If you haven’t used PicsArt before, we’re excited to see what you can create! Our app has everything you could ever need to make amazing edits, both real and surreal!”
Submissions and Notifications
Photographers can submit original as well as edited image(s) from February 3–14, 2016 to PicsArt. They should have the hashtag #MadeWithPicsArt Contest to enter. Additionally, after submissions close, a jury of the company’s editors will select the entrant that best uses the app’s creative tools.
The winner will be notified via comment from a PicsArt community manager within 48 hours of the end of voting. He or she will be given an e-mail address to send an e-mail and mailing addresses. Each entrant is responsible for monitoring his/her photo comments for prize notification and e-mailing the address given. If a winner does not send their address to the e-mail given within one week, the company has the right to forfeit that prizewinner’s prize.
