Standard Application

Are you Officially Amazing? Apply now to find out

If you’re an individual wanting to attempt a record, our standard application process is offered without charge. Record-breaking is open to absolutely everyone, no matter where you're from, what language you speak, or how old you are. 

The Guinness World Records database is bursting with 40,000 current records and we always want more incredible achievements. You don't have to be an Olympic athlete or rocket scientist to be a Guinness World Records title holder either ­- we treat every claim with the same degree of professionalism and respect, whether you are a chainsaw juggler, a sick-bag collector or the next Usain Bolt.

We are waiting to hear about your special skill, peculiar pet or tremendous talent – submit a free-of-charge application now. You just need to tell us about the idea for your world record and our team of Record Managers will determine whether it could be accepted as a Guinness World Records title. The review of your application can take up to 12 weeks. For more information on what makes a record check-out our FAQs.

If your idea is accepted, you will receive your official Record Guidelines and all the information on how to attempt the record.

If you’re successful in your attempt, your record-breaking achievement could be published here, be included in our next Guinness World Records book or even be featured on one of our global TV shows!
