As reported in Event, the project was attempting to break the Guinness World Record for the world’s largest collaborative artwork. At least 28,267 images are needed to break the record.

More than 200,000 children submitted their self-portraits, breaking the record.

The Face Britain project was run by The Prince’s Foundation for Children and the Arts and is the first time video projections have been used on the palace.
