Lord Sugar has a new apprentice, Andy Murray is Sports Personality of the Year (again) and BBC journalist Ore Oduba took the Strictly crown – but who will win HTFP’s Front Page of the Year prize?
Our annual poll opens today and will run until Friday 6 January.
It has been another year of stunning front pages in the regional press and we have selected ten for you to choose from.
They include regional newspaper coverage of some of the year’s biggest national stories including the Hillsborough verdicts, Brexit, the death of Jo Cox and the 100th anniversary of the Battle of the Somme.
The shortlist below also includes stories of more local significance such as the fire that devastated Exeter’s Royal Clarence Hotel and the North West Evening Mail’s campaign for justice for baby Poppi Worthington who died following a sex assault.
