Help us pick the best, most historic, most Canadian front pages of the Winnipeg Free Press.

Could it be Cindy and Clara comparing medals in Turin?

Or the trial of Louis Riel?

Winnipeg winning the Stanley Cup? Yes, that Stanley Cup.

What about Manitobans heading off on the Nile Expedition? Or the arrival of the Beatles. Maybe the death of the beer snake?

Newspapers Canada and PEI 2014 are calling on Canadian newspapers to submit their best front-page stories for a competition called The History of Canada in the Nation's Front Pages.

PEI 2014 is a non-profit organization planning the 150th anniversary of the 1864 Charlottetown Conference, which paved the way to Canadian Confederation. Newspapers Canada is a joint initiative of the Canadian Newspaper Association and the Canadian Community Newspapers Association.

The national competition will celebrate and award newspaper stories that have made front-page news.

 

Categories cover a range of subjects including:

 

1. Canadian politics

2. Canadian sports

3. Canadian heroes

4. Canadian arts/culture/entertainment

5. Canadian science/technology

6. Canada at war

7. Canadian communities

8. Canada on the international stage

 

The Free Press can enter three front pages in each category for a chance to be represented in the final project. The front-page stories must date from 1864 to December 2013. Ordinary Canadians and a panel of industry experts will help select the winners.

 

Please help us decide which we should enter.

You remember the story; we'll find the front page.

Send your suggestions to frontpage@freepress.mb.ca by May 20.
