The Oscars of Art

Its that time of year when I write a blog post that I know is going to get over 1000 visits a day for the next 6 days. That every time I open my email account it is going to say downloading 1 of 250 emails. Just to keep up with approving the comments I need a glass of milk every hour.

Want to know what causes this frenzy. Well the judge has made her decision, the trophies have been painted ( or are nearly finished after all they are a masterpiece in themselves), the giant cheques are at the printers, Lynne and Jenny from the RAS are in overdrive tizzying up the venue, the sponsors are chomping at the bit hoping they have the WOW Archie, the students have booked into the dentist for a last minute whitening, the teachers and their designers have selected that WOW outfit , the GREEN carpet has been laid and the VIP”s are coming.

And why all the interest the week before the event. Well the People’s Choice opened of course. Yes its your turn to vote for the Oscars of Art – The Archibull Prize 2015

We know these photos don’t do the entries justice so if you would like to see more elements and both sides of all these masterpieces and meet the students who created them you will find them in our Flickr Album here
