Feel you have the right face – and posture – to grace the country’s number one magazine and help us mark our 90th birthday?
Well, now you can with the forthcoming Souvenir 90th birthday edition of the magazine on sale tomorrow which allows you to use a Blippar app to create your own cover.
In what is the first ever interactive issue of the RT, simply download the app, choose the decade of the cover you want and take your picture. 
Simply share it via social media (the RT hashtag will come up automatically so we know who you are) or send it to to win the prize of a place at our renowned Radio Times Covers Party 2014, held at Claridge’s Hotel in London.  
You’ll mingle with the stars who appeared on the cover of the magazine across 2013, and we’ll include your travel to the city and an overnight stay in a hotel nearby (terms and conditions apply – see below).


 Should you so choose you can dress up as anyone you like, whether you fancy being Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sherlock or getting together with friends and posing as Blue Peter Presenters from the 1970s….
If that’s not enough, there are two potential covers to delight you, featuring all the Strictly dancers, interviews with them inside and and the results of our greatest night in poll.
