The editors of TIME magazine have whittled down their selection of the most important persons of the year. On Monday, the nominees for the Person of the Year award for 2022 were announced.
Since 1927, the publication has made its annual choice for the man, woman, or idea that they believe has had the greatest impact over the course of the previous year.
The publication that was produced included a shortlist with ten contestants to choose from. On the list were a number of guys, including Elon Musk, the winner of the Person of the Year award for 2021, Ron DeSantis, the governor of Florida, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, the president of Ukraine, and Xi Jinping, the president of China.
Representative Liz Cheney was one of the women on the list, along with Amazon co-founder Mackenzie Scott and Janet Yellen, who was the first female Secretary of the Treasury in the history of the United States.
This year, the major groups of individuals that are being considered for the award include the demonstrators in Iran, the Supreme Court of the United States, and gun safety advocates.
On Wednesday, the magazine will make its formal selection and reveal it.
