I am delighted to announce HuffPost's 2010 Game Changers -- 100 innovators, mavericks, visionaries, and leaders who are changing the way we look at the world and the way we live in it. Whether standing front and center in the spotlight or working under the radar, they are having a game-changing effect on their fields -- and inspiring others to follow in their footsteps.
Innovation has always been part of HuffPost's DNA. So we're pleased to recognize those who are pushing the envelope. Our Game Changers operate in multiple worlds but, whatever the arena, they share a common trait: a willingness to look at things and take the risk of saying, "I think I have a better way."
We are honoring Game Changers in 12 different categories: Politics, Entertainment, Style, Tech, Business, Travel, Green, Sports, Food, Education, Media, and Impact (where we salute those changing the game when it comes to philanthropy and service).
To salute these Game Changers, we've put together slideshows giving you the lowdown on who we picked, why we picked them, and how they are changing the game.
But that's just the beginning: now it's up to you to vote for the Ultimate Game Changer in each category.

We'll announce the 12 Ultimate Game Changers after the voting closes in mid-October. So check out our selections and cast your vote. Make sure your favorite in each category becomes an Ultimate Game Changer.
