Headline of the month

THANKS mainly to PR person, Mike Ritchie, allmediascotland’s ‘Headline of the month’ competition – in association with whisky folk, Whyte & Mackay – keeps nicely ticking over, with nominations.

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.

So, Mike has three more contenders:

1. Hip-hop samples Tweed – The Herald, November 22 – Story about range of tweed clothing for top rappers.

2. From Manure to Couture – Sunday Herald, November 15 – Feature on a fashion designer who is from farming stock.

3. Pantos worth their buttons – The Herald November 23 – Feature on panto time.
