Headline of the month: two to begin with

THANKS again 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 £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 two more contenders:

1. A whole wild salmon on sale for £3 – so what’s the catch? – Scottish Daily Mail, December 8, story about price of salmon.

2. This year a tree is for life… and not just fir Christmas – Edinburgh Evening News, December 8, story about the option to buy or rent a live tree for the festive period.
