Announced on January 1, 2006, twenty-one finalists. The Egyptians were dissatisfied with the fact that the only surviving miracle of the original list, the Great Pyramid of Giza , was to compete with those of the Statue of Liberty, the Sydney Opera House and other landmarks, calling the project absurd. In response, the pyramid was declared an honorary candidate. The results were announced on 7 July 2007 in Lisbon:
