McLean Edwards - Glenn Barkley, curator McLean has previously been an Archibald Prize finalist in 2004, 2006, 2007 and 2010.

|Winner of the Packing Room Prize:|
Tara Moss by Mathew Lynn
oil on linen, 214 x 107 cm
Nobody who wins the Packing Room Prize ever wins the Archibald prize - but that didn't stop the Packing room staff and their Chair - Steve Peters, the Gallery’s storeman (with 51% of the votes - so what he says matters!) - from deciding who should win this year's Prize of $1000 cash and a $500 ANZVisa debit card.
This is the 22nd year of a prize awarded by the Gallery staff who receive, unpack and hang all the entries.
The winner is Mathew Lynn's portrait in oils of Tara Moss
