A few years back I was made redundant and found myself unemployed. In between job interviews (oh, OK- watching property renovation telly progs) I would enter competitions online. It was an attempt to win food and not starve.
I won a pair of padded cycling shorts.
Now I have won something again- and this time it's much more palatable (part of the prize was a bottle of gin).
One of my cartoons has been chosen by The Spectator as the winning entry for their '2013 Michael Heath Award for Cartooning'.
