That would be an interesting approach! Please do check if they would be
interested. Did you do something like this before (with so many different
images, we'd be talking about a huge storage capacity - much more than a
few banners/photos on repeat... so I'd be curious if their soft/hardware
could handle it.
Nemo: I think we'd be talking about all WLM 2016 photos, so that would be
more around 200-300k photos (I hope), and at the earliest in
Any other people willing to work on this follow-up project?

>> 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.
