He said: “I never expected to win, having spent my 40-year career awardless. I went for that one because it made me smile the most.”Trevor accepted the “overdue” award for his pal at the London ceremony.
The Political Cartoon of the Year Awards, hosted by headhunter firm Ellwood Atfield, were held in St John’s Smith Square in London on Wednesday with Jacob Rees-Mogg and Angela Rayner presenting the awards.
As Steve was unable to attend the event the award was accepted by his friend and columnist Trevor Kavanagh.
Trevor said: “It is a long overdue award, Steve is a massively accomplished cartoonist who is widely respected across the industry.

“He brings the column alive. Every week he manages to concisely present the topic in a witty way. Plenty of people only end up reading my piece because Steve’s art has caught their eye.
“Ours has been a hugely successful relationship, we’ve worked together for more than 10 years and he continues to amaze me with his incredible talent.”
