The Huffington Post is launching its Game Changers awards — “100 people who are using new media to reshape their fields and change the world.”
Making the awards democratic, Arianna Huffington is asking for your submissions for “game changers” in 10 categories: Politics, Entertainment, Technology, Media, Sports, Business, Style, Health, Green, Philanthropy & Service.
Of course, we’re most concerned with your thoughts on media’s game changers. Certainly Huffington herself belongs in the category, and we’d make cases for members of The New York Times digital newsroom, ProPublica and people like Andy Carvin who are helping NPR harness the power of citizen journalism with new media tools like Twitter. And what about people like Matt Drudge and Perez Hilton?
Here’s a fun summer Friday game: who would you nominate as new media game changers in media?
- David Carr to Join Boston University
- Hugh Jackman Loves Rupert Murdoch
- Barbara Walters' '10 Most Fascinating People' Includes Robin Roberts, Idiots
- 'Media Person of The Year' Finalists Unveiled
