A Glasgow pupil wins a competition to design a large number Christmas cover

The judges applauded 10-year-old Fergus Rutherford Mueller from Glasgow for his collage of a snowman dressed in red and his iconic Big Issue hat, with Big Issue magazine in hand.

His design, chosen from hundreds of entries from kids, will be featured on the magazine’s front cover from Monday.

Glasgow times:

Fergus said: “I like the big version so I got some magazines and some papers and cut out the shapes and put them together.

“I was just going to bring a snowman but then I wanted him to wear a Big Issue jacket and hat, so he looked like he was selling the Big Issue. I think it’s a happy picture.”

There was also a group prize for the children’s cover competition, which went to the Sycamore class of Year 5 at Beeston Rylands Junior School in Nottingham.

Big Issue Editor Paul McNamee said: “It’s exciting to see so much talent from the next generation.

“Christmas is a really important time for the big cause, especially in the midst of the cost of living crisis.

“A great cover is vital to helping our sellers make the money to get them through the tough winter months.”

Greg James BBC Radio 1 DJ and competition judge said: “The level of entries has been extremely high. I can’t wait to see my buddy George selling the magazine outside the BBC. I will say this is based on it.”
