The months before the spectacular, record-breaking Declaration of The Official New 7 Wonders of the World gala in Lisbon on July 7, 2007 were particularly active, culminating in a wave of media calls for last-minute votes. After the more than 100 million votes were counted, the media shared the New 7 Wonders of the World with viewers and readers.

For a change, New7Wonders coverage let “international” mean something good — beauty, empowerment and mutual appreciation — in sharp contrast to the frequent features pairing “international” with violence, disagreement and intolerance. A historic, democratic milestone was achieved—and the media took note.

New7Wonders Founder and President Bernard Weber notes, “We are proud to have brought people together in a way that has never, ever been done. This is the first time that people from all corners of the globe joined their voices together — for our common good. In doing so, they chose The Official New 7 Wonders of the World. We thank the media heartily for multiplying and sharing in the New7Wonders message.”
