First time art competitior Warren Crossett has won the lucrative Moran Art Prize for a self portrait inspired by St Jerome of Flanders
Melbourne artist Warren Crossett has won the prestigious Doug Moran National Portrait Prize for his self-portrait inspired by St Jerome of Flanders.
The $150,000 reward is thought to be the world's most generous art prize and was announced in Sydney at Juniper Hall in Paddington on Wednesday.
RESPECTED photographer Louise Whelan gave Toowoomba North State School students a master-class on photography yesterday.
She came armed to the school with a photographic kit complete with six printers and cameras for the students.
Ms Whelan instructed the students on how to take interesting photos and using the medium to tell stories.
Year 6 student Alex Laughton said he was excited to have the opportunity to learn how to use a camera.
"I like photography and it would be a cool job to have because you get to travel a lot and meet people," he said.
NIGEL Milsom knew he’d won. The announcement, the congratulations, the four hours of media interviews hammered home the inescapable fact that the Newcastle artist had indeed been awarded Australia’s most famous art prize.
Still, it just didn’t feel real. ‘‘It doesn’t really feel like I’ve won anything,’’ Milsom said late on Friday afternoon. ‘‘It just feels a bit surreal really. ‘‘People have said that I’ve won the Archibald, [and] it’s like, ‘Oh, really? Is that what all those interviews were about?’.’’
