This year, we're running the tab headlines first, and the Main page contest after, with the other contests (wordplay, context, etc) after. Just a heads-up that all of the subtab headlines are now up today: Sports, Geek, Entertainment, Politics, and Business (look down the page or on the tab if you're looking for them). I'm going to keep this stickied to the top for an hour and a half for voting purposes, and will probably bump them up a bit tomorrow to catch votes from people who missed them because they were busy at work or out Christmas shopping.

Here are your final candidates for Fark's Business Headline of the Year. These are the top 20 business headlines as voted in the preliminaries, with the top five from each quarter of 2013. Now you get to choose the one you like best. Enjoy.
