Having bonus prizes is a great way to encourage designers to participate in your contest. Each bonus prize is $50 and can be awarded to any designer by simply clicking "winner" on the entry that you think deserves recognition. You can purchase up to 10 x $50 prizes and give them to 10 different designers or 10 entries from one designer. It's flexible.
Bonus prizes are not the same as regular prizes because they are only $50 and therefore do not meet the minimum amount to purchase a design. You will not receive the design when awarding a bonus prize. If you would like to receive multiple designs, you need to Add regular prizes.
