You have a typo. Try again.

It should be service@instructables.com https://www.instructables.com/about/contact.jsp

lthough, there have been problems with getting prizes out, especially if you are outside the US.

I took 2nd place in the Halloween costume contest and I haven't received my prize either - going on 4 months. I live in the US (NY State). Would it be possible to get an ETA? Thanks. pete

I've forwarded this on to our prize folks - you should hear something soon! Sorry it's taken so long.

I am not a staffer. If you already emailed that service@instructables.com and got no luck with that, try to PM(private message) shadylogic or jessyratfink, I do not know who is or how they handle the shipment of contest prizes now.  Hopefully you will get an answer since they shut down on weekends California time.
