The Big Issue is up for a whole host of awards at the PPA Scotland Magazine Awards – and you can vote help us come out on top in the Cover of the Year category.

Our incredible team-up with iconic political artist and satirist Ralph Steadman for our “Fear and Proroguing” Boris Johnson cover has been nominated for that particular gong, which will be decided in a public vote.

Additionally, Big Issue editor Paul McNamee is nominated in Editor of the Year – Consumer Magazines category, and our art director Ross Lesley-Bayne is up for the Designer of the Year prize.

We are also in the running for the Consumer Magazine of the Year, with a 16-strong judging panel making the decisions. The winners will be announced at a glamorous awards ceremony at Edinburgh’s The Hub on November 28.
