When you refer someone to PhotOlympic, both sides get $5 bonus. You can do the following things with it: a) you can use that Bonus as your competition fee and pay less, or b) if that amount exceeds the competition fee, you can save it for the next year’s competition or request a payout. If accumulated amount is higher than the entry fee, the rest of the money can be transferred to your PayPal account (minimal 25 $).
