Cheating in Photo Contests
Sep 2, 2012

"The Tim Olsen Gallery has cancelled the Ben Ali Ong exhibition 1000 Years Beside Myself after a story in yesterday's Sydney Morning Herald revealed the artist had used pictures taken by others for artworks under his name."

Which makes me wonder how do you know when someones work is their own and how do you eliminate cheating in photo contests ?
The artist in question was using stock photos from an agency

"Ben Ali Ong has held a dozen solo exhibitions in the past five years and made the finals in leading prizes such as the Moran photographic, the Blake and the Head On."

generally his photos would bring around the $2,400.00 mark.
