Belated congratulations to jp1885 who was the runaway winner of April’s Writer of the Month contest with eight front page stories. He becomes the second writer to win the hallowed NewsBiscuit mug for a fourth time, giving him enough crockery to host his own Republican-style Tea Party. To properly mark the achievement he will also be presented with Pippa Middleton to take home and keep.
Honourable mentions also to ianslat, Vertically Challenged Giant and Genghis Cohen who scored two front pages each, but even under the alternative vote system they were never going to catch jp1885. And many thanks to the other 12 or so writers who all made the front page in April, as well as everyone else who landed a News in Brief or made it onto the ticker.
It is just a shame that our first foray into product placement advertising has been undermined by the decision not to publish photos of the Bin Laden raid. Now no one will ever see those intimate images of the reclusive international terrorist’s final moments chuckling at the NewsBiscuit site, drinking from a NewsBiscuit mug and wearing his NewsBiscuit body armour.
