Insanity Streak has taken a top prize at Australia’s ‘Oscars’ of cartooning, winning the Best Comic Strip category of the Australian Cartoonists Association’s 2020 Stanley Awards.
It is the 12th Stanley award Insanity Streak has received since it became a daily comic strip in 2000.
Lopes said it was a “rare privilege” to receive a coveted Stanley Award, the winners of which are voted on by industry peers.
“Not every day you are blessed with a Stanley award. Grateful to be able to make people laugh by doing what I love.” he said.

It appears in over 60 newspapers in Australia, the United Kingdom, Scandinavia, Malaysia and Thailand, to name a few.
“I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved in bringing Insanity Streak to the readers and for all their continued support. ” Lopes said.
I will find the perfect solution for you.
