The Tripwire Awards 2022 Winners

by Olly MacNamee

Held at London’s Cartoon Museum, and co-hosted by Jasper Bark and Tripwire editor-in-chief/founder Joel Meadows, here are the nominees and winners (in bold) from this year’s Tripwire Awards. And, as one of the judges, it’s good to see some of my own nominees put forward for consideration not only making it onto the list, but win in several categories too. All as voted for by the public.
