Here is every single entry from our 2018 Christmas kids cover competition

Each of the 1,100-plus entries from right across Britain this year has been lovingly crafted, with colouring pens and glitter and pencils and bits of felt and boundless, unquenchable imagination and enthusiasm

We asked, and you delivered. We’ve been absolutely blown away by all the entries we had this year to our annual kids Christmas cover competition. In the end we received more than 1,100 entries from under-13s up and down Britain. We congratulate Lucy Norris, our overall winner, for a compelling entry that can be seen on the cover of this week’s The Big Issue. But we also want to take the time to thank every single person who entered.

To parents, grandparents, teachers, carers, aunts, uncles and anybody else who spent time sticking, helping and stuffing envelopes and sending emails, we thank you and we salute you. You are part of The Big Issue, part of what we do and why we do it.

You are helping Big Issue vendors out on the street make a living and help them lift themselves up as they work their way out of their perilous situation. You help make Christmas.

For over 30 years, the Big Issue has been committed to ending poverty in the UK. In 2024, our work is needed more than ever. Find out how you can support the Big Issue today.
