    Благодарю за оценку нашей работы! Hi,

    My name is Viachaslau Sikora. I am a film director and the winner of your Best Feature Film award for the month of may for my film “Russian World”. I would like to travel to the United States to claim my award. Could you please extend a written invitation that I could present to the Polish embassy in order to open a visa?

    Thank you.

    I will, of course, cover all expenses related with my visit to the United States, including the costs of retrieving my award.
