    We are providing prizes for all winners, but only if they are participating in person in Moscow. Maybe this year we will give prizes to online participants, but can not guarantee that. More info will be published on our website in January.

    Of course, it is not a problem if you participate in any other olympiads.

    Unfortunately, we don't pay for the flight to Moscow. But if you want, you can come to Moscow on your own.
