Well, one way to get to find out who uses PHP (meaning they use a PHP 
application on their web server, not necessarily develop in PHP) is to follow 
the links off the web sites of the popular frameworks. For example Joomla! is 
used by IHOP, United Nations, MTV's Quizilla. And of course MediaWiki, the 
engine running WikiPedia is written in PHP.
I don't know if it helps, but my German hometown newspaper WZ-Newsline.de runs 
their online presence using a CMS written entirely in PHP. Of course, I've 
forgotten the name of the CMS. And the WZ paper (WZ = Westdeutsche Zeitung) is 
not just some small penny saver paper. Same applies for the Aachener Zeitung 
at az-web.de.
Uh, and not to forget the other big CMS Drupal. Take a look here: 
http://drupal.org/cases

Hope this helps,

David
