Win a top dog VIP trip to the gala opening of the Glasgow Film Festival!

Simply buy this week's Big Issue for a chance to win tickets to Isle of Dogs and an overnight hotel stay

This year’s Glasgow Film Festival opens with Wes Anderson’s eagerly anticipated stop-motion animation Isle of Dogs. In the future, canine saturation has reached epidemic proportions and so all dogs are exiled to Trash Island. One boy travels there to search for his dog Spots, kicking off an adventure of precisely stylised, in the way only Wes Anderson can, proportions.

Most exciting of all, we have a competition prize which is really top dog. You could win a pair of tickets to the sold-out screening in Glasgow on 21 February, including entry to the exclusive after-party and an overnight stay for two at CitizenM – breakfast is included (though transportation to Glasgow is not).

To be in with a chance of winning, buy this week’s Big Issue and find the code word then send a postcard or email us at – include your details and a daytime telephone number.

Glasgow Film Festival runs from February 21–March 4. The full programme of over 330 individual events is live now at

In total, more than 92,000 people have sold The Big Issue since 1991 to help themselves work their way out of poverty – more than could fit into Wembley Stadium.
