Australian Open is $52 or $53 per person per event, but prizemoney is $225k last year and now going out to $250k this year, info will be released tomorrow. I also believe they going to spread the money deeper down next year also, which will assist a few others like myself hopefully. The year i made it to the last 16 at the Oz Open in shepparton, i got paid $250 for that effort, the folloing year when it returned to darebin they scrapped the last 16 part and doubled the last 8 money etc.

So if they go back to last 16 i'll be a lot happier anyway this year i expect

In the long run the Vic Open prizemoney is probably garbage per event in comparison.
