Who may join us?

Soon time to apply for Fjällräven Polar

When the dog sleds leave Signaldalen, Norway, on 5 April 2016, a total of 29 people will have been selected to participate. The selection process is based on a competition where you upload a photograph or video and a text explaining why you should be chosen for the trip. The competition takes place on a country-by-country basis and two people from each country/group are selected:

• The first person from each country is selected by visitors to the website voting for their favourite application – the submission with the most votes is guaranteed a spot.
• The second person from each country will be chosen by Fjällräven.

The participants will be chosen to join Fjällräven Polar from each of the following countries/groups: Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, Benelux (Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg), UK, USA, Germany, Poland, Czech Rep.South Korea & Other countries (the category for all other countries).    

The application period is 18 November – 10 December 2015.

Country-by-country competition to participate – an example:

The application submissions for each country/group will be ranked by popularity based on the number of votes each submission receives. The most popular submission in each country wins a spot in Fjällräven Polar. For example, let us say that number one in Sweden receives 350 votes, number one in Norway 400 votes and number one in Germany 700 votes (these numbers are, of course, purely hypothetical). It might happen that a submission that is ranked third or fourth in one country receives more votes that the submission that came in first place in another country. This does not mean that the third- or fourth-place submission has a better chance of being chosen – only the first-place submission in each country is selected by the “people’s vote”.

Conditions for participation

To participate you must be over 18 years of age and in good health. In general, Fjällräven Polar is not more physically demanding that what normal fitness levels would require. You are responsible for deciding if you will participate.

As a participant in Fjällräven Polar, you approve that you will be filmed, photographed and interviewed before and during the event, and that this material will be used for Fjällräven marketing purposes in the future.
