Caitlyn Jenner, leader of ISIS among candidates for Person of the Year award

Posted: Updated:

Caitlyn Jenner and Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, the leader of ISIS, are among this year’s candidates of TIME magazine’s Person of the Year award.

The magazine announced the candidates Monday morning.

The 2015 Person of the Year will be announced on Wednesday, the magazine said.

TIME gave a reason for why each candidate was nominated for the award.

Al-Baghdadi inspired followers to fight and stage attacks across the world, TIME said.

Jenner’s transition prompted widespread conversations about gender identity and LGBT issues, TIME said.

Other candidates include Black Lives Matter activists, CEO of Uber, Angela Merkel, Vladimir Putin, Iran’s president, and Donald Trump.
