How do I attempt a world record?
At Guinness World Records we want everyone, anywhere in the world to be able to make their own record-breaking dreams a reality.
That's why the record application and assessment process for individuals is completely FREE - and always will be.
The free application service we offer individuals takes up to 6 weeks for existing records and up to 12 weeks for new record categories.
The entire process - from your first application to the delivery of your personal Guinness World Records certificate when you break a record – is offered without charge.
Can I get a faster response?
Yes! If you need a quicker response to your application our Fast Track service guarantees a response to your application in three working days and costs £450/$700. You can select Fast Track during your application.
Can I invite a judge?
Yes! Our Record Adjudicators travel the world to provide on-the-spot verification of record attempts and you can hire a judge to attend your attempt. Inviting a Guinness World Records Adjudicator is a paid-for service. For further information and to invite a judge, select this option when making a standard application.
Congratulations! You have taken the first step on your journey to becoming a record breaker.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Guinness World Records community of record holders.
