It’s your turn to choose

It's that time of year in the news business where we start to reflect on the year that was — the winners and losers, the dramas and controversies, the sensational and the scandals.

And after reflecting, what this annual rite leads to is our choices as the top Free Press stories of the year: locally, nationally, internationally and in entertainment.

But this year, we are going to break with tradition by taking the decision-making out of our newsroom and handing it to you, the reader.

You’ve seen the headlines. You’ve read the stories.

You’ve drawn your own conclusions on the good, the bad and the ugly of 2013. And now you get to vote.

What you will find attached to this column and also online at winnipegfreepress.com is a ballot for the top stories in each category. Mark your top choice, and if you want, your reason why. As well, there is a space for you to nominate your own choice if you think we have overlooked some big story. For those on Twitter, we will also get the conversation going via tweets at hashtag #wfptop2013.

We will close voting on Dec. 15 and publish what Free Press readers have decided are the top stories of 2013 as the year draws to a close.

— Paul Samyn is the Free Press editor
