New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has been nominated for Time magazine's Person of the Year, alongside several celebrities, politicians, sports stars, and more.
The title is awarded to an individual or group who has had "the greatest influence on the events of the year, for better or for worse", and is decided by the editors of Time.
The winning nominee is the front cover feature in the magazine's annual Person of the Year issue.
Ardern was presumably nominated for her handling of the COVID-19 pandemic in New Zealand.
Time's Person of the Year has been awarded since 1927 and in 2019 was won by climate change activist Greta Thunberg.
Since its inception, every US president has won Person of the Year, bar two - Ardern is joined in this year's nomination by US President Donald Trump and US President-elect Joe Biden.
Time also runs an online poll for readers to vote for the 'People's Choice' at the Times' website - although this doesn't affect the editors' decision for Person of the Year.
Biden has already received a high number of yes votes from readers with 64 percent of voters believing he should be the Person of the Year - Trump on the other only receiving a measly 8 percent yes votes.
Others on the list who have a high number of yes votes are; essential workers with 81 percent, US Vice President-elect Kamala Harris with 68 percent, and US Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Anthony Fauci with 81 percent.
Ardern's yes votes are currently sitting at 54 percent.
Celebrities nominated for the title include Cardi B, Taylor Swift, Kanye West, Beyonce, Ariana Grande, Korean pop group BTS, and Borat actor Sacha Baron Cohen.
Sports figures nominated include NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace, WNBA basketball star Sue Bird, NBA star LeBron James, and NBA commissioner Adam Silver.
The World Health Organisation was also nominated as well as TikTok creators as a whole, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey.
Ardern was named as one of Time's most influential people in 2019 for her handling of the terror attack at Al Noor Mosque in Christchurch.
Time's winner will be announced on December 10 (US time).
