PPA launches search for Cover of the Century
The UK’s Professional Publishers Association (PPA) has revealed ten shortlisted magazine covers for its Cover of the Century Competition. The covers were revealed at the association’s Centenary Party in London last week, kicking off celebrations to mark the PPA’s centenary year in 2013.
PPA members were asked to submit covers for consideration, and a panel of independent industry experts whittled those submissions down to a shortlist of ten covers.
The shortlisted covers are: Woman’s Weekly – July 1916, wartime women; Harper’s Bazaar – November 1941, fashion blitz; Cosmopolitan – March 1972, launch issue; Time Out – November 1974, Churchill v-sign; New Scientist – April 1987, Chernobyl; The Beano – February 1999, Dennis The Menace; Vogue – December 2001, a royal salute; Radio Times – April 2005, Vote Dalek!; Empire – June 2005, breathing vader; Macuser – February 2012, how evil is Apple?
Voting for the cover competition is taking place at www.ppa.co.uk/PPA100.
The cover with the most votes will be named Cover of the Century, and will be announced by PPA on 21 November 2013.
