Due to SGP laws, the host cannot giveaway cash prices without being taxed, so prizes are given with items of equivalent market value (2018 prize: iPad 6 x3, 2019 prize: Electronic product vouchers). There are also policies preventing banks from gifting too much to an individual entity so the prizes for individuals have an adjusted weighting, though they will compete for the same pool with teams, i.e. there are only 3 slots of prices, champion / 1st runner-up / 2nd runner-up, the actual payout depends on whether a team or an an individual won the slot. SGP / HKG site has their prize pools separated.

Max team size is 3 just like ICPC (Speaking of which many top ICPC members from CUHK / HKU / HKUST has joined).
Third party libraries imports are ALLOWED. The only restriction is that you should not collude with others outside of your team (of course).
