From The Australian:
Hicks family photo wins art prize
* By Doug Conway
* March 13, 2007
The winning entry shows the Adelaide couple, looking pensive and with remote control on hand, watching themselves on the television news in their lounge room.
Entitled Waiting For News On David, it was taken on the fifth anniversary of their son’s detention without trial at the infamous American prison in Cuba.
Photographer Ben Searcy, who was today awarded the $30,000 first prize in the Doug Moran contemporary photographic competition, said he wanted to make a political point about Hicks and his family being denied a “fair go”.
