The new wonders of the world were chosen through an international contest carried out by a private foundation. It was inspired by the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The winners were chosen through a popularity poll conducted worldwide. Due to complaints in the final stage of the contest, the Great Pyramid of Giza was eliminated from the voting list and was designated instead as an Honorary Candidate, since it is the only Wonder of the Ancient World that remains standing. The results were announced on 07/07/07 in a big ceremony in Portugal.
