He said a total amount of $10,000 will be given away as prize money to winners and runners-up in the two categories.
“The Winner in the Over 35 category will receive $5000, while the Runner-Up will receive $1000. The Winner and the Runner-up in the Over 40s category will receive respectively $3000 and $1000.
