The award, made this week at a ceremony in London, was presented by Cherie Blair. Higgins, who draws Colin, beat Private Eye’s Dredge & Rigg and The Times’ Jonathan Pugh, who were also on the shortlist.

The judges – who included Guardian columnist Polly Toynbee, the city editor of the Daily Telegraph and Channel 4’s head of news and current affairs – said: ‘This year’s winner came from an unexpected place. We’ve all laughed at accountants and in a year in which accountancy has continued to be in the news this cartoonist has brought some painful home truths to its readership!’

The Workworld Media Awards are run by the Work Foundation and the cartoonist category ‘celebrates the need to take the occasional irreverent look at work, business and management, and appreciates the cartoonist’s ability to use humour to make their point’.

Other winners this year included The Times, the Financial Times, BBC Radio Five Live and the Money Programme.
