We believe that the people living in the community should have a say in selecting the team. All applicants meeting the required criteria will be selected as candidates. The candidates will then have the opportunity to rate all other candidates’ projects. Using a network theory voting system analysing the structure of relationships between projects, a community will self-select from the candidate pool. For nine months over winter, this crew will live as a community in Antarctica, whilst running their projects and participating in the documentation of the experience.
