Person of the Year
Every year, TIME editors select the individual or group with the most profound impact on our world over the past year for better or for worse. As one of the world’s most recognized and anticipated media events, Person of the Year exemplifies TIME’s power to ignite a truly global conversation.
Past POYs have included: The Silence Breakers, Angela Merkel, The Ebola Fighters, Pope Francis, Barack Obama and The Protestor. Each of these individuals (and every one chosen before them) drastically altered our world in the year in which they were celebrated.
