TIME - creating debate since 1927

TIME’s Person of the Year is the magazines most famous feature and has been an annual issue since 1927. Each year, TIME editors select the person(s) who has had the most influence, for better or worse, over the last year.

Controversy and debate often arise from the Person of the Year announcement, and it is always eagerly anticipated and receives worldwide coverage from other media outlets, including other newspapers, web sites and television networks. Over the years, TIME has often thought outside of the box with the Person of the Year and the title hasn’t always been given to a person. In 1983 the PC was named the Machine of the Year followed in 1989 by naming Endangered Earth as Planet of the Year.

Other title holders include:
