Most annoying: Artist and family by Rodney Pople.
Best stylistically: Portrait of a Seated Woman by Marcus Cullum.
Most surrealistic (think René Magritte) : Self Portrait - For A Change by Pam Tippett.
Most pretentious title but most interesting background:, Self portrait as Quong Tart's Contemporary (After John Thomson) 2011 by Jiawei Shen.
Best overall (with allusions to Giorgio de Chirico): Professor Penny Sackett: Astronomer and Physicist by Andrew Mezei.
