July headline competition: Extra! Extra!

LAST week, a story ran in the Glasgow newspaper, The Extra, about a police crackdown on petrol forecourt thefts in the south-west of the city, promptig the headline: ‘Oil catch you!’… to become the latest contender in this month’s ‘Headline of the month’ competition – run by allmediascotland.com, in association with Whyte & Mackay.

It was penned by sub-editor, Jim Cameron, and nominated by the story’s reporter, David Oliver, who also nominates ‘Cat in the act?’, about a possible sighting of a panther in Pollok Park – penned by editor, Allan Hodge.

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.
