How it Works

Unfortunately, we can only send one person away for a whole year! If you want that person to be you, you will need to advance through 5 different stages where progression is determined by voting (apart from Stage 1!). After each vote, some will be eliminated as we eventually narrow it down to just one person.

Stage 1 progression will be determined internally by GVI where we will choose the Top 50 entries.

Progression from Stages 2-4 will be determined by public voting on the GVI Facebook page.

By Stage 5 we will be left with our remaining finalists who will go to one last public vote to send that lucky winner away for a whole year!
