By Guardian Staff

Retiring head packer Steve Peters, finishing up after 35 years, announces Peter Smeeth as the Archibald packing room prize winner at the Art Gallery of New South Wales in Sydney, for his portrait of television personality Lisa Wilkinson.

The $1,500 prize, picked from the Archibald finalists announced the same day, is judged by the gallery staff who hang the exhibition. Peters maintains the prize should be awarded to a portrait ‘that's good and looks just like the sitter'.

Wilkinson says finding enough time to sit still for Smeeth was a challenge but, ‘he's definitely captured me'.
