From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Time 100 is an annual list designating the 100 most influential people in the world. The original online sources refer to
the list with the following quote: "Meet the most influential people in the world. They are artists and activists, reformers and
researchers, heads of state and captains of industry. Their ideas spark dialogue and dissent and sometimes even revolution.
Welcome to this year's TIME 100."[1][2] The announcement was celebrated with a black tie event in New York City on
April 26, 2011. [3] The honorees were joined by A-list celebrities at Frederick P. Rose Hall, Jazz at Lincoln Center for the
event. [4] Time readers contributed to the selection by an online vote of over 200 finalists.[5]
The list included familiar global newsmakers such as United States President Barack Obama and Chancellor of Germany
Angela Merkel as well as what the media describes as newcomers to the global press. [6] The list included numerous figures
representing the year of upheaval in the Middle East ranging from rebels, to political leaders to news correspondents.
Although the events of what has been dubbed the Arab Spring, were prominent, media figures unrelated to those events also
figured in the list as well. [7] Additionally, Prince William of Wales and Catherine Middleton, were part of the list during the
week before their internationally celebrated wedding. [8] The list also included Katsunobu Sakurai, mayor of Minamisōma,
Fukushima, which was the city most affected by the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami.[6]
