REMARKS: In previous years, SOPA absorbed the full cost of processing fees imposed by PayPal on credit-card transactions.  In 2017, we intend to keep the entry fees at the 2016 level and we will continue to absorb part of the processing costs. However, this year a 2.5% credit card processing fee will be reflected in each entrant’s submission to help us cope with rising expenses. Thank you for your understanding.
