Why invite a judge?
Only a Guinness World Records judge can determine what's a world record! If you want instant, on site verification of your record attempt then you can invite one of our Adjudicators.
The presence of an official Adjudicator will super-charge the profile and PR potential of your record attempt. The immediate verification of your record attempt not only means you can walk away with a Guinness World Records certificate but also allows media to report the new world record straight away!
If you would like a judge at your record attempt, we offer a paid-for Official Record Event (Adjudication) service.
What is an Official Record Event (Adjudication)?
Our Official Record Event offers:
- The prestige of a Guinness World Records official at your event
- The immediate verification of your record attempt
- A Guinness World Records certificate for each record achieved
- An official presentation ceremony for successful record-breakers
- A skilled media spokesperson who will announce the new world record to any journalists present
- The use of Official Attempt logos to promote your record attempt
Inviting a Guinness World Records judge and the Official Record Event both carry a cost.
Do I need a judge to attempt a world record?
No, you do not need a Guinness World Records judge or to purchase an Official Record Event, in order to attempt a record. Many record attempts are undertaken without the presence of an Adjudicator.
When attempting a record using the standard free service, and without a Guinness World Records judge, you must ensure you follow the record guidelines and carefully compile the evidence to document your attempt.
