5 It is worth noting that in the Archibald there have and continue to be portraits of family and friends of the artists, who may not in themselves be considered ‘distinguished’ in the prescribed fields – such as ‘My Jack’, by Jenny Sages, which was a 2011 entry, finalist, and portrait of her husband. However while this is the case, one could place them in the ‘distinguished’ category through close association with the ‘distinguished’ artist, or the selection committee intending to create controversy.
