Dawit N.M., Hands, 2019, archival print, 20x30 in. (Edition 2 of 5) 

WHAT IS IT?
WRITE AN ARGUMENTATIVE ESSAY FOR A CHANCE TO WIN A PRINT OF MINE (IMAGE ABOVE) CUSTOM FRAMED AND SHIPPED TO YOU AT NO CHARGE.

HOW TO ENTER?
WRITE AN ARGUMENTATIVE ESSAY ABOUT SOMETHING YOU GENUINELY CARE ABOUT; A MINIMUM OF THREE PARAGRAPHS - ADDRESSING YOUR CLAIM, YOUR COUNTERCLAIM, AND YOUR REBUTTAL - IS NEEDED TO ENTER THE GIVEAWAY. MAKE SURE YOUR CLAIM AND COUNTERCLAIM ARE WELL-THOUGHT-OUT. I, DAWIT N.M., WILL BE THE ONLY ONE WHO VIEWS THE ESSAYS, SO PLEASE BE AS OPEN AS YOU CAN. TO PAY IT FORWARD, EVERYONE THAT SUBMITS AN ELIGIBLE ESSAY WILL RECEIVE MY VERY OWN ARGUMENTATIVE ESSAY. 

SUBMISSIONS CLOSE MAY 31, 2021. AFTER, I'LL HOLD A RANDOM DRAWING ON IG LIVE (@DAWIT_NM). THE WINNER AND I WILL CHOOSE THE BEST FRAME TO PLACE THE WORK IN, A FRAME THAT RESPECTS THE PRINT AND FITS WITH THEIR HOME.

WHY AM I DOING THIS?
PRE-COVID, WHENEVER I WAS WITH A GROUP OF FRIENDS, I WOULD HOST THIS GAME I CALLED UNPOPULAR OPINION. AS THE 'HOST,' I WOULD EMBODY SOMEONE WHOSE VIEWS WERE COMPLETELY DIFFERENT FROM THE GROUP, AND I WOULD GO BACK AND FORTH DISCUSSING A MULTITUDE OF TOPICS. MY GOAL WITH THAT GAME WAS NOT TO BE THIS ANNOYING DEVIL'S ADVOCATE, THOUGH MANY OF MY FRIENDS DID SEE ME LIKE THAT; IT WAS MORE SO TO HELP MY FRIENDS ESCAPE THE BUBBLE THEY WERE UNKNOWINGLY IN BY INTRODUCING A CHARACTER OUTSIDE THEIR BUBBLE. 

DUE TO COVID UNPOPULAR OPINION HAS TAKEN A BREAK. HOWEVER, I THINK IT'S NEEDED NOW MORE THAN EVER TO INTRODUCE THE IDEA OF BEING COMFORTABLE WITH LEAVING YOUR BUBBLE AND EXPLORING OTHERS TO UNDERSTAND THE WORLD BETTER AND NOT DEAL WITH LIFE IN ABSOLUTES. I HOPE THIS PRINT IS WORTH WRITING AN ESSAY FOR...
