YESTERDAY’S Edinburgh Evening News report of police blocking a planned 24-hour coffee shop… prompted the headline: ‘Police say no to latte-night coffee’.
It was penned by chief sub-editor, Mark Campanile, and nominated by Evening News editor, Tom Little, for this month’s Headline of the Month competition, sponsored by Whyte & Mackay.
Each month, a bottle each of Whyte & Mackay’s Special whisky goes to the author and nominator of what’s considered to be the best headline.
What’s more, the best headline of the year wins its author and nominator each a bottle of limited edition Whyte & Mackay 30 year-old, worth an estimated £150-plus a bottle.
