Celebrate our N7W anniversary with the “Wall of Wonders”
Today, 11 November 2016, marks the five-year anniversary of the announcement of Table Mountain as one of the New7Wonders (N7W) of Nature!
In 2011, after years of whirlwind planning and millions of votes, the Cableway celebrated the news at the V&A Waterfront – where the announcement was screened at a special event.
Leading up to today, we’ve written a series of #ThrowbackThursday blogs – each highlighting the N7W campaign journey.
In addition, we’re giving locals the opportunity to celebrate this milestone with our N7W legacy project. Visit one of our yellow frames, snap yourself there and share it with us for a chance to win a prize – there are seven up for grabs!
Finally, we’re calling on all locals and visitors to upload a selfie to the “Wall of Wonders” today. The “Wall of Wonders” is a digital wall depicting all the N7W. It allows users to upload a selfie to their favourite wonder and together all the photos create an image of the wonder.
Of course, we’d love it if you’d select Table Mountain as you wonder of choice. It currently has the third most uploads – behind Ha Long Bay in the top spot and the Iguazu Falls in second place.
Here’s how to do it:
Visit www.wallofwonders.com. On the right side, you’ll be prompted to upload your photos – select the camera icon. A pop-up will ask you to “Choose your Wonder” – it allows you to scroll through the wonders.
You can either take a photo or import a photo from one of four options.
Take a photo or make your selection and hit the “UPLOAD PHOTO” button. You’ll be prompted to “Crop photo and save”. Watch your photo be added to the wall, and voila! You can opt to “Stay on the Wall of Wonders”.
By clicking “Yes”, you’ll select one of three options. Once you’ve made your selection – fill out your details as seen below and hit “Save”.
You’ll know your image has successfully saved when you receive a welcome note from “Wall of Wonders”.
