THANKS to Glasgow freelance writer, Paul Drury – of PR consultancy, Media Now – there is a late contender for the January competition of allmediascotland’s ‘Headline of the month’ competition – run in association with whisky folk, Whyte & Mackay.
And ‘Bhoy’, what a headline!
Reporting the departure of two Celtic stars – Stephen McManus and Danny Fox – The Scottish Sun cheekily ran the tale under the headline: ‘McManus, Fox Off’.
You get the feeling a sub-editor has been waiting all their life for such an opportunity. It ran on Tuesday last week.
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 £150, of Whyte & Mackay 30 year-old are the prizes.
Eligible are headlines in Scottish newspapers (national and local), plus Scottish magazines and online.
