Earlier this year the British Comic Awards committee decided on a shortlist of 5 comics to be given the consideration of over 100 young readers to judge. This was the shortlist

Zorse by Ramzee with Liz Greenfield (Self published) – Buy it here
Last weekend young judges from far and wide attended a special ceremony at the (very fancy) Lord Mayor’s Banquet Hall in Leeds Civic Hall. Our many, many young judges have read, discussed and voted for the 5 nominated titles and have came to Leeds to be the first to hear which of the nominees has won.
Before the winner was announced our judges will have enjoyed talks from YPCA nominees Neill Cameron, Ramsey Hassan, Adam Murphy and Matthew Swan and learned the reasons, methods and secrets of how such comics are made. Then, finally, the golden envelope was opened (there really was a golden envelope) and the award was presented to…
Lost Tales by Adam Murphy and Lisa Murphy!
Huge congratulations to Adam, Lisa and the team at David Fickling Books!
