The Big Issue is now 700 editions old! But our cover artist is just 10. Congratulations to Freya from Melbourne who has won our 2023 Kids Cover Competition, with her bright, festive drawing of Santa filling up stockings with copies of our magazine. “The idea kind of just came to me, really,” says Freya. “I just thought that if it’s going to be a Big Issue cover and it’s around Christmas, maybe people would like to give them as presents.” Indeed!
