2021 Newport Living and Lifestyles Annual Influencer Awards #NLLAiA 

The #NLLAiA awards will feature three men and three women who are noteworthy because of their initiatives, inspiration, and influence in the Greater Newport RI area. These 6 people will be chosen by you, the community, and highlighted in a formal stylized photoshoot and monthly editorial features throughout the year.

Newport’s monumental history is filled with impressive examples of trailblazers and influencers who changed the American landscape artistically, politically, and philanthropically for the better — including the likes of Gertrude Whitney who became a famed sculpture artist, Alva Vanderbilt who stood for the suffrage movement, and Doris Duke who restored over 80 Newport homes. #NLLAiA will help keep that storied tradition alive by showcasing nominees who are striving for excellence and positive change in and outside our beautiful city by the sea Newport.
