BAM! (Behance Artistic Media)

Introduced by Wilber et al. in BAM! The Behance Artistic Media Dataset for Recognition Beyond Photography

The Behance Artistic Media dataset (BAM!) is a large-scale dataset of contemporary artwork from Behance, a website containing millions of portfolios from professional and commercial artists. We annotate Behance imagery with rich attribute labels for content, emotions, and artistic media. We believe our Behance Artistic Media dataset will be a good starting point for researchers wishing to study artistic imagery and relevant problems.

The dataset consists of:

  • Automatically-labeled binary attribute scores for over 2.5 million images across 20 attributes each
  • 393,000 crowdsourced binary attribute labels for individual images
  • Short image descriptions/captions for 74,000 images from the crowd
