July headline competition: even more

ENTRIES for the July Headline of the Month competition are beginning to flood in.

On Wednesday, there was ‘For whom the decibels toll’, in the Scottish Daily Express, and yesterday it was ‘Pawn yerselves!’, in the South Glasgow  News.

Yesterday, Henry Ainslie, a reporter on the Allanwater News nominated colleague, Joan McCann, for ‘No backing Doune over pedestrian crossing’, accompanying a tale about a community campaign for a pedestrian crossing on the A84 through Doune town centre.

McCann is news editor at publishers, Forth Independent Newspapers.

Up for grabs each month are bottles of Whyte & Mackay Special whisky – for both the author of the ‘best’ 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.
