Richard Chapman, Shine Deputy Chair, comments:

‘One of the enduring images of the Covid lockdown was the apartment buildings of Madrid and Milan, with neighbours leaning over tiny balconies chatting, bashing saucepans to pay tribute to healthcare workers or singing and playing guitar to pass those strange evenings.

‘This wonderful cover image captures a series of six stories in a single illustration: every character comes to life on their balcony, bursting with a story to be told, together but alone.

‘Two Zero One is the publication all our judges were instantly drawn to because of that almost haunting image and bold type – the hallmark of a great magazine cover.’

Highly Commended
