NEW YORK, Nov. 02, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- WSJ. Magazine hosted its 11
annual Innovator Awards at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City last night. The annual awards gala returned to a star-studded in-person format, while simultaneously premiering an all-access virtual presentation, allowing everyone to watch the honorees being recognized for impactful achievements made in their respective fields.
Selected by WSJ. Magazine editors, the eight pioneering talents, each of whom is featured on a cover of the magazine's highly anticipated November Issue, include: Colson Whitehead (Literature), Kim Jones (Fashion), Kim Kardashian West (Brand), Lewis Hamilton (Sports), Lil Nas X (Music), Maya Lin (Art), Ryan Reynolds (Entertainment & Entrepreneurship) and Sesame Street (Public Service).
"If the last 20 months have taught me anything it's that the world needs Innovators now more than ever," said Kristina O'Neill, editor in chief of WSJ. Magazine. "That's why I'm so thankful for the imagination and determination this year's honorees bring to everything they do. And to be able to host them in person, to feel the power of their transformative vision gathered in one room--it's what makes this issue and event something I look forward to all year."
"This year's celebration marks not only a return to in-person events, but a moment in time when the trusted journalism of The Wall Street Journal has never been more in demand given its ability to inform, edify and inspire us all," said Josh Stinchcomb, global chief revenue officer of The Wall Street Journal. "I salute both this year's Innovators as well as the generous support of our sponsors Harry Winston, Samsung, Remy Martin and Foxtrot--without whom none of this would have been possible."
