It's a been a huge year in our visual world.

Through 2013, the staff photographers at KPCC have been at the heart of the biggest stories in Southern California.

The year began with the largest manhunt in Southern California history as law enforcement searched for the fugitive Chris Dorner.

In the early months of the year, five candidates criss-crossed Los Angeles seeking votes in the mayor's race. One candidate remained at the end.

A shooter on the campus of Santa Monica College triggered an outpouring of grief followed by a rally of support.

As spring gave way to summer, some of the worst wildfires in recent years spread in the mountains around Southern California.

Gay marriage became legal in California with the downfall of Prop 8. Hundreds of happy couples flocked to courthouses after a massive rally in West Hollywood.

As the year came to close, yet another shooter stalked a terminal at Los Angeles International Airport acting on a vendetta against TSA agents.

These were the most important stories of the year, and we want you to see them as well as hear them on KPCC.

That's why we launched AudioVision – the site you're looking at right now – in June.

It's been a great six months. We hope you've enjoyed the stories we've shared as much as we enjoyed sharing them with you.
