Remove Frances Abbott's late entry from this year's Archibald Prize. Issue a statement clarifying this matter. Apply the same rules and standards to all entrants. Keep Australia above the corruption and nepotism that damages so many other countries.

Applying different rules to entrants goes against one thing that has made Australia into a great place to live: the philosophy of a fair go for all.

If one applicant is allowed to submit late, this disrespects the other entrants who have made the effort and adhered to the rules.

It also sends the message that the AGNSW favours artists according to their background, which in turn cheapens the image of the AGNSW. 

Remove Frances Abbott's late entry from this year's Archibald Prize. Henceforth apply the same rules and standards to all entrants. Keep Australia above the corruption and nepotism that damages so many other countries.

Please issue a statement that clarifies this situation in order to put our minds at rest.
