Adamson Awards

Adamson Awards

Adamson Awards is a Swedish award awarded to notable cartoonists, named after the famous Swedish comic strip "Adamson" (Silent Sam).

They have been presented by the Swedish Academy of Comic Art (SACA) at the annual Gothenburg Book Fair since 1965. There have been years in that time when neither award or only one of the two awards was presented.
