Headline of the month: a beauty

ON Tuesday, page eight of The Herald ran a brief story about scientists making all sorts of excitable assumptions about the behaviour of dinosaurs, based on wounds found on a young T. Rex skeleton, leading to the accompanying headline: ‘Dino sores shed light on teen rex’.

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

It was penned by sub-editor, Simon Stuart, and spotted by digital designer, Jerome Charvet.

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.
