The Whole of Greece in One Smile

A photomontage by Kodak titled “The Whole of Greece in One Smile”, celebrating the citizens of Greece and the return of the Olympic Games to Athens, sets new Guinness World Record and wins the Gold Award in its category at the 3rd annual Effie Hellas 2004 Awards Ceremony.

The photomontage comprises 16,609 photos of the Greek community that cover a surface area of over 5,000 square feet. The montage, situated in the Athens Syntagma Square opposite the Parliament of Greece, was recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records as the largest photomontage ever created, breaking the previous record – also held by Kodak – of 12,012 photos displayed at an exhibition in St. Petersburg, Russia in May 2003.
