Vote now to help Axegrinder pick Press Gazette's Headline of the Year

It’s been a year since Press Gazette revived its Headline of the Month competition, thanks to some generous sponsorship from the nice people at Jura single malt whisky.

Now its time to pick our Headline of the Year winner.

Why? You may well ask. Because the skilful sub who wrote our winning headline will be sent away for courtesy of Jura for a weekend’s break on the Isle of Jura where George Orwell wrote in 1984.

The luxury lodge costs a small fortune to rent normally so this is a prize that is really worth winning.

There’s also a fantastic prize for the person who nominated the winning headline.

Cast you votes now.

Here are the winners again, you can vote using the poll at the bottom of this post:
