Headline of the month: more coming in

THE Edinburgh Evening News today carried a story today about Edinburgh publisher, Jamie Byng, of Canongate Books, cashing in on a deal which secures the rights to the US President’s autobiographies.

It was written by reporter, Michael Blackley, and was headlined: ‘Hit Obama books turn city publisher into Jamie bling’.

It’s the latest contender in allmediascotland’s ‘Headline of the month’ competition, in association with whisky folk, Whyte & Mackay.

Up for grabs each month are bottles of Whyte & Mackay Special whisky – for both the author of the headline and the person who has nominated it, with the monthly winners entered in a ‘Headline of the year’ competition where two bottles, each worth an estimated £150, of Whyte & Mackay 30 year-old are the prizes. The above headline was nominated by PR person, Stephen Rafferty.

Eligible are headlines in Scottish newspapers (national and local), plus Scottish magazines and online.

Meanwhile, also PR person, this time Mike Ritchie, today pitches in with this contender, from the Sunday Herald magazine, about the increasing popularity of tea: ‘Tea rooms turn over a new leaf’.

And from today’s Scottish Sun (you’ll remember the Stevie Wonder track): ‘Signed. Sealed. Delivered. Up Yours!’, accompanying coverage of the signing of the EU Treaty that leaves Britain, where exactly?
