After a couple of months of research and deliberation -- and thousands of viewings of microphones and punk singers' teeth -- we have chosen the finalists for the best music photographers serving the Twin Cities. And, there's a twist. Since we received a ridiculous amount of quality submissions, we expanded the pool to a top 20.

Gimme Noise has profiled each photographer, and the poll where you can vote will be up on Friday, February 21. For now, here's an alphabetical list of the finalists.
