Leo Messi has gathered his fair share of awards – and now a recent FourFourTwo cover featuring him is in contention for an industry award. The August cover, which features a striking image of Messi in his Argentina kit, has been nominated in the Maggies – alongside titles including GQ, Esquire, Glamour, Q, Newsweek and the Radio Times.
Unlike many awards, the Maggies are decided by public vote from a shortlist decided by an industry panel. FourFourTwo is in the Sports & Men's section, up against Rugby World, Tennis Life, Muscle & Fitness and Huck. You can vote at http://www.themaggies.co.uk
Everyone who votes gets a gift voucher worth £2.50 at iSubscribe, which has a range of 1,200 magazines – and £1 from each subscription will go to children's charity Rays of Sunshine.
The winners – in each category and overall – will be announced on October 13.
