More awards success for The Big Issue

The Big Issue was named Consumer Magazine of the Year, while our Donald Trump / They Live front-page scooped a Cover of the Year double

The Big Issue is toasting an early festive treat after we scooped three top industry awards this week.

Our unforgettable front-page featuring a ghoulish Donald Trump as an alien from They Live – John Carpenter’s cult classic film from 1988 – was named Cover of the Year by the British Society of Magazine Editors (BSME) at its annual bash in London on Tuesday, before it collected the same award in a fiercely contested public vote at the PPA Scottish Magazine Awards.

The Big Issue was also named Consumer Magazine of the Year at the Scottish Magazine Awards. The awards recognise magazines that are produced in Scotland – where The Big Issue, that is sold across Britain, has its editorial base.

Our digital campaign to mark The Big Issue’s landmark 25th birthday was also shortlisted for the inaugural Social Media Campaign of the Year.
