Amersfoort, February 17, 2017 -- Mars One announces that it has received ten proposals for the media content production covering its astronaut selection round three. The proposals came from producers in five countries in North America and Europe. Mars One has performed an initial review of the proposals and has created a shortlist of three preferred production proposals.
Suzanne Flinkenflögel, Director of Communications at Mars One says: "We're very pleased with the proposals we received, both with the quantity and the quality. Even though we had set a very tight deadline for the submission of the proposals, we received ten very interesting and diverse proposals. We’ve now shortlisted the proposals that we believe match best with our ideas of tone and style to cover our upcoming astronaut selection round."
Mars One will conduct further conversations with the remaining production companies to discuss any outstanding questions and aspects. At the end of the process, Mars One will select one production company to create the media content around its astronaut selection round three. Mars One expects to choose a production partner before the end of March 2017.
