Headhunters at Poynter
The Poynter Institute is looking for the best headlines of the presidential campaign. News stories, editorials and op-ed pieces are eligible.

Here are some things that "engaging" headlines do, according to Poynter:
  • Ask questions.

  • Use punctuation cleverly.

  • Use alliteration, a pun or onomatopoeia.

  • Directly address the reader.
