Doug Moran prize 2021: judges pick three $100,000 winners in unprecedented decision – in pictures

For the first time in its 33-year history, Australia’s richest art prize has been awarded to three artists, after its judges – artist Tim Storrier, Daniel Thomas of the Art Gallery of South Australia, and Doug Moran’s son Peter Moran – were split down the middle. The portrait prize, which skipped a year last year, invites original works from Australian artists ‘capturing Australians from all walks of life’, with the prizewinner usually taking home $150,000. This year the three winning artists got $100,000 each: they were Michael Vale for a self-portrait; Vincent Fantauzzo for a painting of his ‘muse’ and wife, actor Asher Keddie, and Andrew Greensmith for his portrait of twin survivors of Auschwitz, Annetta Able and the late Stephanie Heller.

The Doug Moran prize-winners and full list of 30 finalists are viewable in an online gallery. Below is just a selection

Jack Monroe Points Out Cost Of Living Measure Shake-Up Was Not The Result Of A 'Row'
Jack Monroe has said statistics officials overhauling the way they calculate changes to the cost of living was not the result of the campaigner being ”combative or demanding”.The food writer, who has exposed inequality in Britain for more than a decade, has highlighted how inflation has hit the cost of everyday essentials, in turn decreasing the availability of value product lines and severely impacting poorer families.Her argument was laid out in a series of widely-shared tweets published last week which were seized on by the media.Monroe went through individual food items and explained how there had been a 344% price increase for basic items such as rice in supermarkets. Baked beans were 22p, and now are 32p, canned spaghetti was 13p, now 35p and bread was 45p, now 58p.Speaking to the BBC on Monday, Monroe said: “I did a £10 food shop in 2012 for the Sunday People and re-did the exact same shop over the weekend and it came to £17.11.“Now benefits haven’t doubled in that time, wages haven’t doubled in that time so people are being forced to buy less, and eat less and consume less.“It’s the people who aren’t represented in the media, and who don’t have a voice, who are just having to make these absolutely terrible decisions, missing meals in order to feed their children or because they simply can’t afford to eat anymore.“It’s a shocking thing to be talking about it one of the richest economies of the world.”The Office for National Statistics (ONS) last week announced that inflation jumped to a near 30-year high of 5.4% in December. But, as Monroe had laid bare, the cost of items such as pasta went up significantly more.On Wednesday, the ONS confirmed it will dramatically widen the number of products it tracks the pricing of to give a better picture of inflation. The policy change was hailed as a victory for her campaign – but Monroe took issue with how the shake-up was being “framed”.She wrote on Twitter: “I find it very revealing how different news outlets frame this: BBC: ‘Jack Monroe row’“Telegraph: ‘Jack Monroe’s demands’“ITV: ‘Jack Monroe pressure’“FT: ‘Why supermarkets should listen to Jack Monroe’“Mirror, People, Guardian: ‘Jack Monroe’s campaign’.“If I did have a PR team they’d probably tell me not to tweet this, but I’ve been very levelheaded and calm throughout this entire mad 9 days, and resent being framed as combative or demanding simply for politely asking that all people are represented equally in national stats.“I know throughout the last decade of anti poverty campaigning I have been fiery, impassioned, sometimes a bit fierce, but I believe the reason this campaign has been as successful as it has been is because I’ve kept my head and my manners, alone, under immense pressure. Thanks.”Delighted to be able to tell you that the @ONS have just announced that they are going to be changing the way they collect and report on the cost of food prices and inflation to take into consideration a wider range of income levels and household circumstances

What happens if Russia invades Ukraine? – podcast
With diplomatic talks at an apparent impasse, Vladimir Putin seems prepared to start a war. Andrew Roth reports from MoscowRepresentatives from Russia, Ukraine, France and Germany met in Paris on Wednesday with the goal of de-escalating the crisis in Ukraine. Russia has now amassed more than 100,000 troops along its border with Ukraine, ramping up tensions in a conflict that has dragged on since 2014.Russia’s key demand is that Ukraine and other countries be blocked from joining Nato – a concession the alliance has firmly ruled out. At the same time, Russian officials continue to insist the troop buildup is just part of military exercises, even as their rhetoric grows more belligerent. Continue reading...
