Headline of the month: the comeback

IN the build-up to relaunching the new-look allmediascotland.com (and thanks to all those who have offered their congratulations and comments on it), one casualty was the 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. There have already been winners for June and July; August, September and this month, however, have been, with a few notable exceptions, sadly neglected.

But it’s back. Eligible are headlines in Scottish newspapers (national and local), plus Scottish magazines and online.

And thanks to PR person, Mike Ritchie, it’s more than back, with four nominations from today’s press:

Beauty in the iPhone of the beholder  Metro – Story about people using iPhones to create eye-catching art.

Skit And Miss From A&M – The Herald -TV page review of Armstrong and Miller’s sketch show on BBC

Fan-tashe-stic Look for Page 3’s Kelly – The Sun – Charity story on Prostate Cancer research and new moustache-print shirt that’s now on sale, in support of it.

Course You Can Have My House – The Sun – Story about a North-east pensioner offering to give Donald Trump his house in exchange for one in Florida.
