NEW YORK, Sept. 22, 2020 — TIME has announced the 2020 TIME100, its annual list of the World’s 100 most influential people.

The issue has eight worldwide covers, each highlighting a member of the TIME100:

  1. Immunologist - Dr. Anthony Fauci
  2. Performer - The Weeknd
  3. Alphabet CEO - Sundar Pichai
  4. COVID-19 frontline nurse - Amy O’Sullivan
  5. Actor -Gabrielle Union and athlete - Dwyane Wade
  6. Performer - Megan Thee Stallion
  7. President of Taiwan - Tsai Ing-wen, and
  8. Black Lives Matter founders - Patrisse Cullors, Alicia Garza, and Opal Tometi.

The TIME100 often includes surprising pairings of the list members and the guest contributors TIME selects to write about them. The seventeenth annual list includes:

The issue will also feature a new cover in addition to these eight covers, and a special tribute commemorating Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg featured on the TIME100 list in 2015.

Of the 2020 TIME100 list, TIME CEO and editor-in-chief Edward Felsenthal writes, “This year’s list looks far different than any of us could have predicted just six months ago. The TIME 100 has always been a mirror of the World and those who shape it. While you will certainly find people who wield traditional power on this year’s list — heads of state, CEOs, major entertainers — it also includes many extraordinary, lesser-known individuals. These individuals seized the moment to save lives, build a movement, lift the spirit, repair the World. Their work challenges each of us to wield our influence toward a world that is healthier, more resilient, more sustainable, and just.”

For the first time, TIME revealed the annual TIME100 list with an hour-long special television event on ABC, produced in partnership with P&G.

On September 23, 24, and 25, TIME will host TIME100 honorees for a three-part series of TIME100 Talks.

TIME is a global media brand that reaches a combined audience of more than 100 million worldwide, including over 40 million digital visitors each month and 45 million social followers. A trusted destination for reporting and insight, TIME says its “mission is to tell the stories that matter most, to lead conversations that change the world and to deepen understanding of the ideas and events that define our time.”
