How much does a WSFed judge earn?

There are three different levels of trickline judges. A, B and C with A being the highes level.
The normal payment is 150 € for A judges, 100 € for B judges and 50 € for C judges, but can be in some cases a bit lower.
Travel, food and accomodation for judges need to be paid by the host of the event.

Will I always be paid according to my license level?

Not necessarily. It depends on the requirements for the according contest.
If, for example, you are an A judge but the contest only requires B or C judges, you can earn only the amount for the highes license required.

With regard to the payment, the judge with the most experience earns the higher money.
If, for example there are two A judges at a contest that only requires one B judge and two C judges, the A judge with the most experience gets the B judge salary, the other A judge only the C salary.
