Headline of the month: here’s another

YESTERDAY’S 3-0 defeat of the Scottish football team, by Wales, had headline writers reaching for their criticisms as well as their witticisms, arguably none more elegantly that the Sunday Herald’s: ‘Scotland wails’.

It’s the latest contender in allmediascotland’s ‘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. The above headline was nominated by PR person, Mike Ritchie.

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