Hello all,

That would be great to try a digital photo exhibition. After this e-mail, the Wikimedian Brazilian Group of Education and Research is thinking about trying to organize something here - maybe inside the subway stations.
Let´s keep in touch!
Best regards,

Hey folks,

A few years ago, we managed to set the world record for the largest photography competition in the world, according to the Guinness Book of World Records. We still hold this record with our 2012 competition

I was thinking, as a little bonus on WLM 2016, would it be nice to try and break another record? The competition will be hard to break if I look at our previous submissions, but there is another record that might be interesting: the largest digital photo exhibition. The record currently stands at 115,117 and seems breakable. 

Based on what I read, this might be a bunch of LED screens all displaying a slide show of photos at a publicly accessible place. We could do this during some kind of event, and simply show all WLM submissions from the international competition. 

Anyway, is there anyone, or a chapter/local team that would like to consider organising something like this? If we want, we could even make it a 'travelling' exhibition. It would require a lot of screens, a nice occasion to display them, a bit of software to show the photos and collecting evidence.
