Heroes of Tripe 2014: Call for nominations

The Tripe Marketing Board has launched its annual contest to find the 'Heroes of Tripe' for 2014.  Nominations - which close on Friday 12 December - are welcome for the person (or persons) who have done the most to promote tripe during the last twelve months.

Tripe lovers will then be invited to cast their vote in a number of categories, including sport, politics, music, journalism, film and the media, before the result is announced at a glittering awards ceremony to be held at the Lyceum Ballroom in Bolton on Thursday 18 December.

Launching the contest this afternoon, TMB chairman Sir Norman Wrassle said: "2014 has been a standout year for tripe.  Sometimes, it's seemed like you can hardly turn on the TV or pick up a newspaper without coming across tripe. We're sure to have a fine crop of nominees to choose from and the contest promises to be keenly fought".

Confirming that the competition was only open to humans, Sir Norman said: "Our Tripe Dog 2014 and Tripe Cat 2014 contests drew record numbers of entries.  This time, it's strictly for our two legged friends.* Everyone's got their favourite tripe celebrity - I know I have!"

Nominations can be made via the TMB's Twitter account @TripeUK by using the 'hashtag' #tripehero, through the Facebook group 'We Love Tripe' or by e-mailing Sir Norman direct via sirnorman@tripemarketingboard.co.uk.

*Excludes employees of the Tripe Marketing Board, although tripe dressers and retailers are encouraged to participate.
