Vote for The Big Issue in the PPA Scottish Magazine Awards!

The Big Issue needs you to back our ‘Grenfell Tower, one year on’ cover in the Cover of the Year category

The Big Issue is up for more silverware – and we need you to help us bag first prize.

Our haunting ‘Grenfell Tower, one year on’ cover is up for PPA Scottish Magazine Awards’ Cover of the Year 2018 gong.

We won the category last year with our Donald Trump/They Live cover – which was also a winner at the British Society of Magazine Editors (BSME) Awards – and we need your help once again to make sure we come out on top at the December 6 bash.

You can vote once a day on as many devices as you like before November 30 so get friends, family and everyone you know to cast their vote here.


The Big Issue is also up for the top prize in the Consumer Magazine of the Year category, with judges putting us head to head with Beano, No1 Magazine, The Scots Magazine and Glasgow Live.

We also have two of our wonderful writers shortlisted in the Writer of the Year – Consumer Magazine category – Books Editor Jane Graham and TV Editor Adrian Lobb are both up for the award. See the full list of nominees here.

Meanwhile, Big Issue editor Paul McNamee is in the race to be named the top Current Affairs & Politics Editor of the Year at the BSME Awards on November 20.
