HeroX has had quite a few challenges award prizes to non-US residents. For example: the Integra Gold Rush challenge (https://herox.com/IntegraGoldRush
) awarded their top prizes to teams located in Canada and Australia. The Forbes Under 30 challenge (https://herox.com/Under30
) awarded a prize to a competitor in Switzerland. The Lunar Initiatives Flash Art Competition (https://herox.com/FlashArtCompetition
) had winners located in Israel, Canada, Brazil and Austria.
Finally, this particular challenge also had several participants located across the world. The judging panel evaluated all of the entries submitted, and the competitor's location was not a factor in determining the finalists. If you have any specific questions about your submission, I know the Addario Lung Cancer Foundation would be happy to answer them for you.
I hope this information helps, but if you have any other questions about the challenges on our site, please don't hesitate to contact me!
All the best,
HeroX Challenge Success Team
