Heroes of Tripe 2014



 15 December 2014 Update:  VOTING NOW CLOSED!



The final nominations for the Tripe Marketing Board's Tripe Hero 2014 Awards have now been received and this afternoon saw the release of the shortlist for next week's public vote-off.

Speaking at the unveiling of the shortlist, TMB chairman Sir Norman Wrassle said: "This is a serious award, celebrating the people who’ve done the most in 2014 to help us promote tripe".  He went on to add that he wanted to be clear that people shouldn't take the awards the wrong way.  "For some reason, tripe has become associated with something that’s of inferior quality.  Our Tripe Hero awards are about turning that around," he said.
