Turnip Prize Winner
Forget the Turner Prize. Here's the one you've all been waiting for: the winner of the Turnip Prize for bad art 2009, awarded yesterday by the landlord of the New Inn pub in Wedmore, Somerset. The winning entry by Frank Van Bough (a female) took pride of place above the bar, a pair of baggy old Y-fronts entitled Manhole Cover. Co-organiser James Timms proclaimed the contest had reached "new standards of low". And what does the winner receive? You guessed it: a turnip. She was "completely underwhelmed" by the award.
