Queensland is the only other state to have had a graduation, which was last night. The winner was Lisa Dupre. Winners from the other states will be announced soon.

He already has the "designer glasses, two week old beard growth, sultry/mysterious, dresses in black look" of the wanker creative type. Was there a lesson on creative grooming for men at AWARD School? What a quick learner...

I like that they've got the wearing black thing down already. That was week 3. Week 4 was, of course. 'Campaigns and Stupid facial hair'.

Luke, you're bang on.

This and the previous story get illiterate reactions from the witless SMS generation.

Can't write, can't spell. Can't put together the most basic discussion.
