The Huffington Post UK is famous for its 'splashes', the wide image at the top of the front page carrying a bold headline and the day's leading story.
From serious statements to pithy puns, our splashes allow us to combine punchy text with powerful pictures.
Many of these pictures communicate a depth of emotional expression not possible with mere verbal description.
The HuffPostUK Picture Desk have searched their archives to bring you a huge selection of our splashes from 2012 - over 300 of them!
