Wacky artists submit bizarre entries for this year's Turnip Prize competition

THIS quacking work of “art” takes a lighter look at the Covid crisis — offering a plastic duck with tape over its bill like a mask.

“Shut The D**k Up” by Doug Tunn is one of the six wacky finalists in the annual Turnip Prize competition.



The contest pokes fun at the prestigious Turner Prize with the top award going to the person who has “created something they perceive to be crap art using the least amount of effort possible”.

Organiser Trevor Prideaux, of The New Inn in Wedmore, Somerset, said 2020’s award had attracted 120 entries.

He joked: “This year we have received a record ­number of entries.

"We have ordered a second skip.”

Other works to reference the pandemic include Lockdown by Herewe Goagain — a padlock placed on a pile of duck down feathers.

Fur Load by Jolly Roger is simply a large bundle of fur.

Rock On Tommy by The Very Reverend Canon Ball is just a rock sitting on a tomato.

The winner — announced on December 1 — gets a turnip on a plinth.
