What is ICONIC?

ICONIC is a free magazine that began life as a TNL Community Fund funded project. The aim is to create a space for the young people, from across Leicester and Leicestershire, to share thier voices. Every aspect of the project was influenced and developed by local young people.

The magazine covers a range of areas from revision and street safety to politics and fashion trends. Our aim is to distribute it to every teenager in every secondary school and college across Leicester and Leicestershire, making it one of the largest publications in the region.

We are hoping to make this magazine an annual publication and depending on future funds, we maybe able to publish up to 3 editions a year.



We are looking for young people, aged 13-18, from across Leicester and Leicestershire to write articles for the magazine. If you would like to be part of the project, visit our Vacancies page.

Advertise in ICONIC

We are currently the only free magazine, designed for young people, which is aimed at young people across Leicester and Leicestershire. We are looking to include advertisments in the magazine, once our current funding ends. The magazine covers a wide range of areas, which may compliment many of the products and services you provide. We distribute our 48 page magazine to over 60 secondary schools and colleges across Leicester and Leicestershire with a readership of 50,000 teenagers. Our magazine is distributed directly to the young people at school and therefore does not rely on any subscription models, expensive postal systems or passing traffic lotteries.

When we are ready, we will add the advertisement costs to this page.

If you are interested in placing an advert in our magazine, email info@cogyouthservices.co.uk.
