New 7 Wonders of the World

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

This article is about the New Seven Wonders Foundation list

 

New 7 Wonders of the World (2001-2007) was an initiative started in 2001 to choose Wonders of the World from as selection of 200 existing monuments. The popularity poll was led by Canadian-Swiss Bernard Weber and organized by the New7 Wonders Foundation based in Zurich, Switzerland, with winners announced on July 7, 2007 in Lisbon.

The New 7 Wonders Foundation claimed that more than 100 million votes were cast through the Internet or by telephone. Nothing prevented multiple votes, so the poll was considered "decidedly unscientific". According to John Zogby,founder and current President/CEO of the Utica, New York-based polling organization Zogby International, New7Wonders Foundation drove "the largest poll on record".

The program drew a wide range of official reaction. Some countries touted their finalist and tried to get more votes cast for it, while others down played or criticized the contest. After supporting the New 7 Wonders Foundation at the beginning of the campaign, by providing advice on nominee selection, the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) distanced itself from the undertaking in 2007.

The New 7 Wonders Foundation, established in 2001, relied on private donations and the sale of broadcast rights and received no public funding or tax payers' money.

After the final announcement, New 7 Wonders said it didn't earn anything from the exercise and barely recovered its investment.

It was the first in a planned series of lists; in 2007 the foundation launched New 7 Wonders of Nature, which was the subject of voting until Nov. 11, 2011. New 7 Wonders Cities is the next project, with voting through Dec. 2013. The New 7 Wonders Foundation is regulated by the Swiss Federal Foundation Authority, as are all nationwide foundations in Switzerland.
