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.
