[Wiki Loves Monuments] Guinness World Record?

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.
