Vote In The Tripwire/Portsmouth Comic Con Awards 2019

by Olly MacNamee

After a successful freshman year, Portsmouth Comic Con will be making it return to Charles Dickens and Neil Gaiman’s hometown this May 2019 with a few more bells and whistles. One such addition will be the inaugural Tripwire Awards which sees public voting open until midnight on Monday 30th April. As one of the judges, I’ve obviously got some vested interest in this one, helping to whittle down the number of nominees to a honed handful in each category.

It’s a simple enough process and you can vote by following the link here.
