    Don't Panic crashed the BP Portrait Awards at the National Portrait Gallery to serve some Krude de Gulf and to cast our critical eye across the oil on canvas. The BP Portrait Award at the National Portrait Gallery was previously sponsored by Imperial Tobacco. Now it is socially unacceptable for tobacco to play this public role, and it is our hope that oil and gas will soon be seen in the same light, as the public comes to recognise that the sponsorship programmes of BP and Shell are means by which attention is distracted from their impacts on human rights, the environment and the global climate.
