St John’s School, Leatherhead
The Eagle

With good reason, The Eagle felt no need to wait to declare Volodymyr Zelensky their Person of the Year. A superb cover combines a file photo over bold streaks of paint and Slava Ukraini (Glory to Ukraine). Our judges were unanimous in their praise of this of-the-moment, bold statement.

Highly Commended

Prior Park School
Park Life

Prior Park have delivered a superb cover linking a 1920s Louise Brooks-style bob with a 2020s Covid facemask in a graphic duotone illustration.

Highly Commended

Whitgift School

Whitgift’s eyecatching, ‘Billion-dollar Bitcoin’ illustration is the heart of a striking cover which the judges praised for its instant impact.
