  • Here is an example on how the total prize money is calculated:
      • Say 50 photos have been received for this contest which will be uploaded in Everest Serve India FB page
      • If each photos get 50 likes then for 50 photos, we will get 50*50 = 2500 Likes
      • Now, Likes fund = 2500 Likes*Rs10 = Rs 25,000.
      • Now 1st prize = Base prize money + (Likes fund/3) = Rs 10,000 + (Rs25,000/3) = Rs 18,333.
      • 2nd Prize = Base prize money + (Likes fund/3) = Rs 7,000 + (Rs25,000/3) = Rs 15,333.
      • 3rd Prize = Base prize money + (Likes fund/3) = Rs 5,000 + (Rs25,000/3) = Rs 13,333.

All the best for the participants.
