"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."

Can we call someone 'an all-time winner'?

Example: If someone wins a series of matches then can we call him an all-time winner, also can we give away an award with that title?

Thank you.

    Thanks for your prompt reply.

    Which one is correct?

    All-time or All-Time?

    If I understand @mheredge correctly, you should never write the word all-time with a capital letter unless it is at the beginning of a sentence. So All-Time isn't correct.

    I wonder how a title should go. For example, I know a TV series All-stars (or All-Stars).

    All-Time can be used if it is a title @Janjard. So a title "All-Time Greats" or something like this is okay. But if you are just writing a sentence about the all-time greats, then you shouldn't capitalise each word.
