Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
disagree  Steffen Walter: As I read it, this is about entries submitted to an architectural competition, so "staff" would be out of the question here. / "Candidates" ist aber auch zumindest doppeldeutig, da der Begriff sich auch auf Personen beziehen könnte.

  -> Deswegen habe ich anschließend den 2. Vorschlag gemacht. Hätte wohl den 1. wegmachen müssen. @ Steffen: Es geht vermutlich um Nachrücker(-Projekte), die von Personen entworfen sind. Wer gewinnt: das Projekt od. die Person?

neutral  Horst Huber: Or do they mean "replacement teams"?
