The Standard Application process is free-of-charge and is open to anyone wishing to attempt a record title to earn their place in Guinness World Records history.
Our team will first review your Standard Application and if it can be accepted, we will make the Record Guidelines available to you via your online account, as well as the Guide to Your Evidence which outlines the evidence you need to submit in order for Guinness World Records to assess the outcome of your record title attempt. This document will also include printable templates of documents to submit to us.
All evidence must be submitted online. You can upload your evidence by logging into your account. Please do not send evidence to Guinness World Records by post as all file types are accepted online.
After this, our expert Records Management Team will assess your evidence and if your attempt is verified as successful, we will send you one complimentary Official GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ Record-Holder Certificate to confirm your record-holder status.
Unfortunately we are unable to respond to letters, so please make an application or check our contact page.
Please do not send us evidence before submitting an application and receiving your guidelines as we will not be able to process it.
