    The Trophy is very expressive and there's no good promocode , most of the festivals costs one hundred dollars and some are seventy and you guys make it about 300 !!
    Why ??? Beside shipping taxes here in Africa too .. trophy must be cheaper if you want people to order it beside if I bring it here many people will submit
