Prize fund

Three prizes in each nomination are awarded with prize cups, diplomas, souvenirs and prizes from sponsors. Some nominations (for example, “demo”) will also share among themselves the prize fund, which is made up of money, according to a simple formula: Income minus expenses divided by the number of prize winners, taking into account the occupied place factor (50/30/20). Revenues are money collected for tickets and sponsorship. Costs are all the total financial costs of the event.
