Iconic cover up for award

Whether he’s playing statesman at the Olympics, having a kick around or playing doting dad to the adorable Harper, David Beckham is one of ELLE’s favourite men.

We love him so much, in fact, that we made him our first male cover star in a sensational shoot that reached more than 268 million people last summer. It was impossible to ignore (and not just because the sight of those abs emerging from the water made jaws, quite literally, drop). Now the iconic image has been recognised by the industry: our July 2012 cover has been shortlisted for Cover of the Year Award by the Professional Publishers Association, or PPA for short.

ELLE would like to give Becks a very special retirement present: we’d love his cover to win the award. Voting for this one is open to the public, so we think you should show your love for David Beckham by backing his cover to win.

You don’t have to pretend to be following the beautiful game: it’s just one click to say thank you to our most photogenic national treasure.
