If J.G. doesn't do what he has to do he does what he likes to do.
This includes an attempt to produce an online piece of graphic story-telling as well as reading (pretty much everything - as long as it has bite), casual writing (who doesn’t?), running, coaching, cooking and making a home.
According to his wife, he even has the odd moment of sanity.

Awards Judged (if any) -
None
About -
Jessica is a former comic writer and artist of a comic most people have never heard of, unsurprisingly, since it was published in a magazine that had a circulation of about 10 people, who, most likely read it then tossed it away and to be fair, she doesn't blame them.

More noted for her artistic (and press) photography, she runs a photography company. She would like mention that she has served time for her more musical travesties as part of bands signed to her own Hung Teddy Records.
She is also a rather accomplished programmer, being quite the dab hand at code, she met her partner, via a design request for the comic website and now they live happy together in the north east of England. Jessica is also wiccan.

Currently in it's 20th incarnation, the Gilbert and the Grim Rabbit site now runs her own webcomic platform, nekoKitsune, that is soon to be finalised and made available for the use of all.

Judge
Awards Judged (if any) -
Best Comic, Best Writing, Best New Comic, Best Longform Comic
About -
Oliver Knörzer is the raccoon obsessed writer of Sandra and Woo which won a Webcomic Beaky Award as one of the three best new webcomics of 2008. Sandra and Woo is a good example for the increasing internationalization going on in the webcomic world: It is written in English for its main target audience in the United States by a German writer and then drawn by an Indonesian artist (who goes by the pen name Powree).
Sandra and Woo is Oliver’s first serious attempt to write an own comic, but he has been a huge fan of comic strips like Calvin and Hobbes since his early childhood.
Oliver was also very involved in the early planning stage of the new TWCL Award.

Awards Judged (if any) -
Best Black and White Art,
About -
Jackson Ferrell is immune to conventional weaponry! We’ll have to employ the phozon cannon!

In reality, Jackson Ferrell is just a guy who likes to read good comics. He spends much of his free time keeping up with the good comics that he has discovered online, finding new good comics, and sharing good comics via his blog “This Week in Webcomics.” Sometimes he makes his own good comics. When he is not freaking out about comics, he helps to develop and ship merchandise for Gordon McAlpin’s movie-theater comic /Multiplex,/ works a day job in purchasing, and plays racquetball with his brother. He’s also involved in the young adult ministry at his church.
Some of Jackson’s favourite webcomics include Multiplex (of course), Nobody Scores, Cat and Girl and Blank It.
If you are out there creating good comics, then no matter who and where you are, he salutes you.

Awards Judged (if any) -
Best New Comic
About -
Raised on a diet of Peanuts and The Beano as a child it was sadly inevitable that Luke Surl would become a cartoonist of sorts. He currently lives in Oxford, UK and his one-and-a-half year old website, LukeSurl.com updates three times a week with cartoons on everything from superheroes to Shakepeare. One day Luke plans to choose an actual name for his webcomic rather than using his own.
Luke reads an inordinate number of webcomics – everything from Order of the Stick to Optipess – and is looking forward to discovering new comics through the TWCL awards.
Luke is also an amateur actor and the founder of the Cambridge Comic Creators Collective (C4). He is also a big fan of science, keenly following the laws of physics ever since he was young.

Awards Judged (if any) -
Best Gag-a-Day
About -
Scott A. Jenkins (known as Jynksie) has been an avid fan of comics since childhood. With a degree in Art History that has proven useless in the real world, Jynksie has put it to use in his personal life studying the art form of American comics and their progression since the civil war era, with a special interest in editorial and gag a day comics. Jynksie has been a part of the webcomics community off and on since 1999, with his first online comic strip called "Committed For Life", which ended in 2001. After a brief hiatus of 7 years, he's back with the wildly mundane "How Sweet It Is" which began in mid 2009 and is currently a judge for "the webcomic list awards 2009".
