The Buckingham Palace 'Face Britain' campaign has been recognized on behalf of the Guinness World Records. The public display is now known for its incorporation of the largest number of individuals within a single art project, a considerable feat given the regions multicultural population.

Face Britain streamed mosaic-based images of Queen Elizabeth onto the royal dwelling. An up-close look at the pictures will reveal smaller self-portraits, all of which were submitted on behalf of over 200,000 British residents.

Design duo Ross Ashton and Boris Glazer orchestrated Face Britain with the help of an advanced photo-sharing system. Participants aged four to 16 were invited to submit their drawings online, and the warm response they received in turn brought Face Britain to unprecedented levels of success.
