With Good Trouble having already taken home Magazine of the Year at the Stack Awards 2018, Rod Stanley and co can’t feel too aggrieved that September’s cover vote saw them coming in an honourable second. Congratulations, then, to The Gentlewoman, whose striking shot of the iconic Agnès Varda proved irresistible to our readers. And, of course, congratulations to Amelia from Instagram on her new Stack subscription!

From now until 20 December we’ll be publishing the three most popular covers from each month of the year, according to likes on the Stack Instagram feed, and asking you to vote for your favourite. On 21 December, we’ll put all the monthly winners up against each other to decide 2018’s champion of champions. With the top title revealed on Christmas Eve, it’s also your chance to win a free Stack subscription for your trouble! Call it an early Christmas present, courtesy of Stack.

Check our Twitter and Instagram feeds today for your chance to weigh in. The voting ends at midnight tonight, and tomorrow morning we’ll pick one person to win a year’s subscription to Stack — so remember to check back!

Choose your favourite cover for October…

@elementumjournal is a beautiful biannual journal that draws upon the landscape and folklore of the British Isles to create a totally original sense of place. Hear editor Jay Armstrong on this week’s podcast, explaining how she creates “a crucible where academics, folklorists and artists can bring their own responses”.
