I believe that photography is an art form. Not only does it represent a meaning, but it contains beauty and emotion for all to see. What is your opinion on this topic?...

is Graffiti Art?

Is Graffiti Art? Yes, it is. Grafitti is art and it takes time, patience and artistic skill. It kills time and even though it is against the law and it damages buildings, you can buy a building or highway and do it there and you are doing it to your property. Still not enough reasons. It is cool and gives people something to look at....

First round is for acceptance. No new arguments in the final round. "Affirmative action" refers to "policies that offer individuals affiliated with a beneficiary group a preference over others in competitions for employment, education, or other valued resources."...

Is it truly theft?

Drtraumaty

This topic circulates around the ongoing question of "Art Theft," and more specifically if it is justified to target people whom utilize other people's artworks for visual-demonstrative purposes only, without modifying the artwork or claiming it to be their own. Especially, when there isn't a specific creative commons license in which dictates usage rights. Most artists on the Deviantart and Tumblr networks do not openly provide their copyright terms, thus there is no way for people to know i...

If animals are hunted for sport, they will go extinct. The same thing happened to the passenger pigeon. They once thrived and now they are extinct. If you want to practice hunting for sport, you could simply use targets....

Can photography be art?

Salutations!I would like to debate weather or not photography can be an art. Photography can definitely be art, I will not how ever claim that all photography is art or that every photo taken is a peace of art. A creative photographer can create photos that show the world just as the way it is, or can distort reality. There is room for creativity in the framing, lighting, and in some cases the photographers editing of the shot. Art also often conveys beauty...

Beloved classic children's books being made into hollywood movies

Disclaimer: This is my first debate (on this website). I did a formal debate once at school, so I am aware that there are certain rules/etiquette, but otherwise I'm pretty clueless about how to go about this or how best to use this website. Anyway here goes... It saddens me when I hear that yet another famous classic children's book is being made into yet another hollywood blockbuster movie. It is a well-known and very evident fact that movies fall short (sometimes hard on their faces) wh...
