The UK's best cover? Empire featured the breathing of Vader when the cover was opened

The UK’s magazine trade body, the PPA, has launched a trade website to publicise Magazine Week 2008, which runs from 29 September to 5 October. Events as part of the campaign include nominating the best magazine cover and an interactive consumer magazine directory.

Among covers nominated are an Autocar cover from 1895, Princess Diana on Vogue shortly after her death and a breathing Darth Vader on the front of Empire in 2005. Entries are judged on:

  • summing up an era and makes a statement about the state of the nation;
  • breaking the mould;
  • resonating with readers and encapsulating the passion of the subject matter.
