Here we are at the Final round of Headline of the Year.  It's been a lot of fun getting here.

First we have the Headlines of the Week, each week, every week, all year long.  Then we have Preliminary Headline of the Year contests in TotalFark all December - breaking out four categories of Main page headlines: Wordplay and Puns, Context, Politics on the main page, and Story.  Then we have Finals for all Farkers to vote for the top headlines in each category.  Those winners of the Main page categories are part of this last contest and will be officially reported next week!

And now we have one more step.  In previous years the Headline of the Year came from the category that this year we labeled "Story" headlines.  This year we had so many great headlines in all four categories (Wordplay and Puns, Context, Politics on the main page, and Story) that we didn't think it was right that only the Story headlines got considered for Headline of the Year.  So we added one final voting.  We've taken the top headlines from each for the Headline of the Year - a kind of 'Best in Show' for the Main page - regardless of the category.

Voting will remain open until Monday January 8, 2018 at 1pm Eastern Time for THE Headline of the Year!

(Tab preliminaries finished in TotalFark yesterday and are being tabulated as we write!  Final voting for all Farkers for the Tab contests starts tomorrow and will also run until Monday!)
