    I most whole-heartedly agree. Best theme I have seen for any contest on this site ever.

    So webdesign isn't art in your book then?
    What is it then? Isn't design art in itself... And I hardly think purely based html sites can interested people these days.

    I would say webdesign would come under graphic design which is not art as its produced for commercial purposes not an emotive lucid piece of work....digital 'art' will end up in galleries and is already starting too, web templates I think not.

    Not all templates are for commercial purpose. Plenty of people make them, without ever doing anything with them. They mostly create them to get a sense of colour commbinations and composition.
    I agree that it's not traditional art, but it's art nontheless.

    I think we're just going to have to agree to disagree.

    You are entitled to your opinion. However wrong it may be.

    Despite it being a good theme, it's one that requires so much more effort than some previous.
    However, exams end tomorrow so I'll try get something in for the deadline.

    PS : Apparently it ends on the...3th of June. =p

    Yeah, tiny mistake there. It's what you get for copy and paste :P

    I'll see how the entries go here, I realise it takes a bit more effort :)

    interest*

    Goddamn, I hate being an OCD spelling / grammar nazi.
    :3

    Anyway, this is an excellent theme, good opportunity to showcase the one you're making SP.
    Whoever was saying it isn't art is horribly wrong, even though he'll disagree, design has everything to do with art.

    Best of luck to the contestants.
