On October 10th in connection with Copenhagen Night of Culture, an Award Show to hand over the official Guinness World Record Certificates done on September 25th, was held on Kongens Nytorv in the centre of Copenhagen. Other than the Award show, it was also the opening/revealing of the 3D CO2 Painting. The painting is the 3D illustration of the CO2 route through Copenhagen that was done in 2009 in connection to COP15. The following images are from the building of the artwork and from the Award Show. The above video is made by Adam & Benjamin of Hovedløs

The artwork was produced in collaboration with Christian Riis (above) of Grounded Craftwork on the Islands Brygge District of Copenhagen.

On October 10th 2014, there will be an Awards Ceremony on Kongens Nytorv in Copenhagen. It happens to be on the same day as Copenhagen's "Night of Culture", where many thousand people roam the streets to engulf themselves in Culture. The above image is the artwork created by Will Gurley and Jacob Fuglsang Mikkelsen, and will be created in collaboration with Svend Sømod, Lasse Bentzen, Anna Vibe and Christian Rømer Riis of Grounded Craft Work. The Award Show will be hosted by Hollywood actress and Film Producer Kristina Korsholm and Sharing Copenhagen's own Jacob Hartmann.

The CO2 symbol was initially created by nearly 100 Electric Cars for the first CO2 E - Race/CO2 Green Drive Performance in connection to COP15 in 2009. In above image you can see the CO2 GPS tag that was shown LIVE on the Globe on Rådhuspladsen. More HERE.

The colors of the KNOxOUT Paint that will be used for the artwork is "A Breeze of Grey" and "Purifying White". The painting is 4 x 4 meters and according to the producers of the paint, it will be equal to planting 16 threes. See more in below video.
