    I do find it strange that geographically limited prizes are offered. The competition is a global event and I cannot understand the reasoning behind national(istic) limits.

    Can someone please elaborate on the situation?

    • Matseng says:

      Probably the cost for shipping overseas and the extra time it takes to fill out the export forms…

      • Ian says:

        Yeah, I guess shipping and export concerns. There are 2 or 3 prizes with a geographical restriction this year. This is a Hackerspace so I was just happy to have them involved.

        The prizes will go into the store and people will be able to pick their own prizes in waves, so nobody will get ‘stuck’ with a geo-limited prize they can’t use.
