Time has revealed its pick for 2014 Person of the Year — or people, actually.

The magazine's annual honor, which highlights those who have had the biggest impact on the world and the news, for better or for worse, has been awarded to the Ebola fighters.

"It’s an incredible honor," Dr. Kent Brantly, medical missions advisor for Samaritan's Purse and the first American to be affected with the virus, said when Today revealed the covers Wednesday morning. "Those who paid the highest price for their service are themselves West Africans. It’s an honor for me to be considered as a part of that group."

The Ebola fighters were awarded the magazine's cover over finalists Taylor Swift, the Ferguson protesters, Apple's Tim Cook, NFL's Roger Goodell and Vladimir Putin, among others.
