Last year challenge prize

Hi,
Our team achieved first rank in task 2 last year, but we couldn’t get our award because of US sanctions (as organisers advised), which I think is completely unfair and demotivating. Although I live in another country (UK) and sanctions are not applied to me, organisers demurred at giving us the award.
I have sent couple of emails but got no response or very vague responses.
I hope they could help us to secure our rights, so these issues won’t disappoint other groups like us to participate in new challenges.

Thanks for your response,
Can any of other team members provide tax documentation (non-U.S. citizens Form W-8 BEN) for receiving the prize?
