Headline of the month: another July contender

A GROUP of school pupils in East Renfrewshire have recently retained a chess title, earning themselves a rave review in their local, free newspaper, the South Glasgow News.

And courtesy of the paper’s editor, Rob Reid, the article was headlined, ‘Pawn yerselves!’, to become the latest contender in this month’s ‘Headline of the month’ competition – run by allmediascotland.com, in association with Whyte & Mackay.

It was nominated for the July Headline of the Month competition by PR person, Mike Ritchie.

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.

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