Celebrating three years of creativity

Happy Birthday to us! Over the last week we have been celebrating the third anniversary of our first ever creative challenge. Can you believe we’ve now had over 150 weekly challenges and over 30,000 entries? That’s a whole lot of unique creativity we have collectively sent out into the world. Whether you have participated regularly or simply admired the entries we want to thank you for helping to make our community so special.

We felt like we were special guests of honour at the most fabulous party ever last week. There were flowers, cookies, cakes and candles and we didn’t want it to end! Let’s take a look at some of the entries that really captured the spirit of the celebrations last week.

While our creative challenges are for creating amazing images, we also read some beautiful captions and are so often moved and inspired by these thoughtful words. Here are some of the birthday greetings we received from creatives all around the world.

Happy 3rd birthday to one of the very best hubs here on Instagram. For 3 years Creatively Squared has been encouraging creatives to engage with each other, get artistic and get a little competitive. Special thanks for all your work to make this such a cool community.

So glad I joined this community and got to know and befriended with creatives from other part of the world. The themed challenges have been so much fun. And it was even more fun when you started winning prizes!

This week, my favourite creative hub is celebrating 3 years of existence, so I want to thank the wonderful team for always being so supportive and cheering us on as we experiment and discover our creative niches. Without you, I wouldn't have found all the amazing people I met through your tags and I wouldn't have grown this much.
