Since it will be exorbitant to send prizes across the border and defeat the purpose of this sweepstake competition - namely to raise funds - every prize winner outside of South Africa may nominate a family or friend in South Africa as the receiver of their winning prize.
Unfortunately this is not possible. One of the purposes of this sweepstake competition is to raise money for the small businesses who are making the prizes for the competition. No prize can therefore be exchanged for cash.
