Pyramids named number one landmark

The Pyramids of Egypt have been voted the nations' favourite landmark in a survey by Truprint.co.uk.

Truprint, the online digital photo printing service (and Golden Goose PR client), asked 1,000 Brits to pick their most-loved site. The Taj Mahal, Sydney Opera House, Great Wall Of China and Statue of Liberty were amongst those battling it out for the top spot.

The ancient tombs at Giza came out number one with 20% of the vote, closely followed by London's Big Ben.

So why are the stony peaks more popular than our own chiming clock tower? The Pyramids are breath-taking at any angle, from sunrise to sunset. Just think how often a picture of the Eiffel Tower or the Leaning Tower of Pisa can look like a strange hat on the top of someone’s head? Even the an amateur photographer would find it hard to get a bad snap of the Egyptian World Wonder.

Everyone Is Art

With the aid of a flock of Golden Geese, Samsung Electronics Europe has launched 'Everyone Is Art', the first giant collaborative artwork to be made and auctioned for breast cancer.

The piece is a recreation of the face of Botticelli's Venus - featuring the faces of 1,096 men and women throughout Europe who are affected by breast cancer, or campaign for breast cancer awareness. 1,096 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in Europe each day.

Breast cancer charities face a constant battle to increase awareness and raise sufficient funding. Samsung has raised over $1.5 million for European breast cancer charities over the last 12 months, providing crucial support for breast cancer awareness, prevention and campaigning.
