AWS controversy resolved

Yesterday AWS issued an announcement regarding the controversy over the Gold Medal winner in the 2008 show. The artist has been required to return the medal and the cash award and is forbidden to enter any future AWS shows. The statement was lengthy and essentially said what everyone already knew: the AWS prospectus is clear on originality and medium, and artists who enter accept those terms when they sign their entry forms. Case closed. I can't help wondering what took them so long.

Like you, I wonder why this has taken so long to resolve. Thank goodness the whole drama can now be put in the past. I hope those who needed to, have learnt from it.
