For over twenty-five years, Tripwire has been championing US and UK comics first in print and, since 2015, on the web. For the second Portsmouth Comic Con, taking place 4th-5th May 2019, Tripwire will be launching THE TRIPWIRE AWARDS, an new awards which aims to celebrate the very cream of UK and US comic talent. “We have been promoting comics for 26 years now and we thought it was time for us to launch our own awards which would take our support to another level,” says Tripwire editor-in-chief Joel Meadows. The award nominations were selected by a panel that featured:
- Joel Meadows, EIC Tripwire Magazine
- Leonard Sultana, The Convention Collective
- Tim Cundle, The Mass Movement,
- Olly MacNamee, The Comicon
Nominations for the eleven categories are open for people to vote on from Midnight 19th December 2018 through until Midnight 30th April 2019, and the results of the awards will be announced at a special inaugural ceremony on Saturday 4th May at the Portsmouth Comic Con.
