    Hi Sean,<br class="">
    <br class="">
    Personally I am not aware how OWASP handles these situations and if
    OWASP has any special deals with hosting vendors for hosting CTFs.<br class="">
    <br class="">
    If there are not any special deals, I could get you in contact with
    a company which offers these services. I've already talked to them
    and they are willing to host it for free.<br class="">
    They have a platform for hosting VMs/CTFs and they organized a few
    CTFs so far. They are involved in the community and they like to
    contribute so it might be a good opportunity. <br class="">
    <br class="">
    You could have a chat with them and see how it goes. Please let me
    know if this could help.<br class="">
    <br class="">
    Sincerely,<br class="">
    Marios<br class="">
