The Maggies is a national poll to celebrate and award the best magazine covers of the past year. The annual awards are a high profile competition, voted for by the general public, and supported by the UK's leading magazine association, PPA.

The industry-wide awards will celebrate the best covers of 2009, whilst also growing the focus on the magazine industry as a whole.

The Maggies will recognize those covers that resonate most strongly with the general public, encapsulate the passion of the subject matter, capture the spirit of the previous year and provoke the most debate.


The Maggies is open to any* magazine cover dated from 1st January 2009 to 31st December 2009. Covers must be entered into one of the following nine categories:

  • Entertainment
  • Fashion
  • Lifestyle
  • Specialist
  • Sport
  • Technology
  • Trade
  • Youth

The deadline for entries is Friday 2nd April 2010. Every entry must be accompanied by a high-resolution image of the entered cover, a short testimonial and a completed entry form. A £100 donation to Rays of Sunshine would also be greatly appreciated.

* Newspapers, on-line, in-house and foreign language magazines are not eligible. Covers nominated for The Maggies in 2009 will not qualify.
