YESTERDAY’S Evening Times carried a nostalgic piece about thrillseekers stuck to the sides on the Wall of Death ride at the Kelvin Hall Carnival.
And sub-editor, Andy Mellin, came up with accompanying headline: ‘Writhing’s on the wall at fairground attraction’… 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 The Herald group’s content editor, Tony Carlin.
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.
