    New World Record Registration
    The four basic requirements* to have a record recognized are:
    1) the attempt is measurable;
    2) it can be breached;
    3) it should be verifiable;
    4) it represent a real achievement, it's legal, moral and sets a good example for others.
    (Obviously, our "First" and "Last" record categories do not need to comply with rule NR 2).
   If a record pass our tough verification process, it will be published on our website and may be included in our publicatins (printed Book of Records and/or e-books, Apps, etc).

  To register your World Record with us, copy and paste the below text into your email and fill in ALL the required info. You must send a SINGLE email with all the requested docs, pics and description of your record. Do NOT send us more than ONE message about each record!

  You need to be at leat 18 yrs old to submit this application; if you aren't, ask your parent or legal guardian to submit the form.

   You can benefit from our fast service if you have registered well in advance your record attempt (1-3 months for personal record attempts and 2-6 months for public events and mass participation attempts), you have our written permission, forms & instructions and, after you set the record, you have submitted it according to our instructions.

   If you haven't registered in advance your attempt to get our written approval or if you don't submit it properly, you can't benefit from our fast service.

  To register IN ADVANCE your record attempt, to receive our confirmation, our rules and our official forms, go to our 'submit a record attempt' page.

   Only personal records like 'tallest dog owned' or 'largest collection of' or similar can be submitted directly; ALL public events must be registered in advance!

  # you can upload the file on YouTube at the HIGHEST resolution and send us the link;
   # leave the original sound, do NOT use any copyrighted music! in most cases, we don't need you to record the entire event, ask before the event;

  # do NOT use a phone to make the video, the quality is way below our standards!

  # if you registered in advance your attempt, you already have specific instructions for your attempt and how to cover it on video;
