- Brian Yarvin survived Superstorm Sandy when it hit his New Jersey home, but nevertheless managed to locate some tripe and, despite the lack of heat or electricity, improvised by tucking into a plate of Tibetan cold spicy tripe in Jackson Heights, Queens.
- Frank Ryding, who runs a busy bookstall in Wigan Market, won his award by selling more copies of TMB Books' Forgotten Lancashire and Parts of Cheshire and the Wirral than any other bookseller in the country (apart from Waterstones). Well done, Frank!
- The Offal Club of Manchester received the award for their unerring dedication to sampling all kinds of offal - tripe included.
