After a flurry of activity during June and July, nominations to a Headline of the Month competition being run by allmediascotland.com have dried up a tad.
The competition is in association with whisky folk, Whyte & Mackay, and so therefore thanks be to Tony Carlin, group content editor at The Herald group of newspapers, for yesterday sending a nomination penned by Paul Smith, senior production journalist at the Evening Times. Smith's headline accompanies a story about fans' fury at refund delays following the cancellation of a Queen tribute gig. The headline goes: We Will, We Will Rook You, Rook You (here).
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.
