What a year it has been. And it’s not over yet. What we need more than ever is a brilliantly bright and festive feelgood cover to lift the spirits of all who see it and help our vendors sell more magazines in the run up to Christmas.
Are you a wonderfully creative kid? Or do you know a budding young artist? Perhaps you organise activities for children or teach a class of talented individuals? If so we want to get you involved.
Since we first launched our kids cover competition seven years ago we have had thousands of amazing creations from young people across the country and we know we’ll be blown away by your creations again.
Last year’s theme was Together, and the winning design was sent by 12-year-old Kaoriko Tamura. She said: “I had extra fun drawing it, especially when I imagined my artwork being sold from The Big Issue vendors. I was surprised when I first found out I won and felt so special.”
This year we want to keep it simple. What makes you feel Christmassy? Is it Santa, reindeer, decorating trees, receiving presents or gifting them to others?
Artwork can take any form, from drawings to paintings to digital art. So have your pens, pencils, crayons and tablets at the ready and send them into us by the closing date of November 23.
