Andrew Bolt with Egg on his Face

It’s Bald Archies time again… The annual Bald Archy competition parodies Australia’s top prize for portraiture, the Archibald Prize, promoting comedy, cartoons and caricatures.

Multiple entries this year drew inspiration from American celebrity Kim Kardashian’s famous photo which sent social media into overdrive, supposedly “breaking the internet”.

The winner of the 2015 Bald Archy Prize will be announced on July 24.

Editor’s note: My favourite so far is Andrew Bolt with egg on his face.! IKR.

New Archive of Digital Art [#geekgirl]


“The new ARCHIVE OF DIGITAL ART (former Database of Virtual Art) goes Web 2.0! Artists, scholars and scientists are invited to actively contribute to the archive and to work collaboratively on the documentation and analysis of digital art.

The ARCHIVE OF DIGITAL ART has recently undergone an extensive turn in terms of technology and usability: In the course of a relaunch, the already established database and its team aim at evaluating and implementing cutting-edge web tools to align with the expanding needs of artists and scholars. New functionalities will be tested and implemented and will incorporated the invaluable input of a growing number of interested individuals. In return, artists, scholars and the interested public will benefit not only from the extensive efforts in documentation, which are accomplished by the ADA since its beginnings, but also from an improved, collaborative tool that reflects on the multifarious aspects of Digital Art.”
