Project: EXPOSÉ 12

EXPOSÉ 12 – available to order now

We are rebooting our book business with EXPOSÉ 12. With your help we will go Ballistic again! We started as a crowd funded company long before the term “crowd funding” was invented. Over the years, we grew into a full-fledged publishing company with global distribution into book shops all over the world – and it wasn’t profitable. So now we are going back to our roots. From now on Ballistic books and other new products will be created and sold only by pre-sales campaign.

Please join us in propelling Ballistic and all the digital artists who participate to even greater heights – order your book now.

The only way to get a book is to order it here and now. Once the campaign is over and we start shipping books there will be no way to order more.


Improvements – 34 categories and a new Modern Master award

You all asked us to reveal who got into the book before ordering. We are relaunching this campaign now with full book layout in hand.

When we went to sort through the almost 8,000 entries, we realized that we had to address the problem of too few image categories.

After a huge effort from a great team of people we re-categorized, sorted, selected and judged images into 34 new categories. With the expanded list of categories, we can more fairly allocate awards, nominations and page space to the vast collection of awesome images we received.

In addition to the 34 new categories we have selected one artist to receive the first Modern Master award. This will replace the Grand Master award this year.


Pre-sales campaign – nothing like Kickstarter or indiegogo.

Our campaigns are nothing like the risky campaigns associated with Kickstarter, Indiegogo and other similar sites. Ballistic is the creator and world leader in the digital art book market with well over 50 books published and sold globally. There is no risk or need for us to run a campaign to develop an unknown product. Our campaigns start with finished products which need to be pre-sold to a minimum level to make printing viable.

We do need to reach a minimum target, usually 2,000. This is the lowest number we can efficiently print, package and ship. Once we reach this volume target we keep the campaign open for just another 30 days to let everyone get their orders in. Then we go to press and ship the books as quickly as possible.

We will not print extra books to sell through distribution and bookshops. If you don’t get your order in during the pre-sales campaign you will miss out.

All the money we collect for pre-sales is held in trust until the campaign reaches its target. If for any reason a campaign is closed before it reaches its target, all pre-sales will be refunded in full.

Previous editions of our books have sold many thousands more than our current target of 2,000.


Affordable shipping!

Ballistic Media has over 13 years of experience shipping books all over the world. We have shipped many 10's of thousands of books to over 170 countries. We know from experience just how hard it is to package and ship books. After drying at the printers, our books are shrink-wrapped and packed in special mailing cartons we have designed. With only direct sales we can offer unbeatable price as well as quality.

Shipping to anywhere in the world is one flat rate - US$15 per book.

 

Announcement of Nominations and Awards.

In addition to award winners we will be announcing the nominees for each award. This is the first year we have done this. We are doing this in recognition of those artists and their excellent images that were in the final round and nominated for awards. Nomination is an honour that we felt should be shared publicly.

We will announce nominations on one day and then the award winners on the next day along with image layouts in the book for that category.

Announcements will happen over the next 12 weeks:

  • ·       Nominations on alternate days 3 times a week.
  • ·       Award winners on the day following nominations.
  • ·       Artists and images that got into the book within a day of Awards announcements.
  • ·       Image layouts (excluding text) within a day of Awards announcements.
  • ·       Summaries on Thursdays by email and newsletters.

Readable text will not be included in the layouts released during the announcement period. This is to allow time for proofing and artist approvals to be received before releasing finished text.

All announcements will be made in alphabetical order to avoid any implication of rank where there is none.

When will my book ship?

As soon as the campaign closes we will finalize the book and get it to press as quickly as possible. Your book will be shrink-wrapped and mailed out in our mailing carton as quickly as possible after printing. From our experience, it takes 8 – 12 weeks on average from printing to people receiving their books. Orders originating from USA will be sent from our Los Angeles warehouse and those orders from the rest of the world, including Canada, will be sent from our warehouse in Horsham, Victoria. Australia.

eBooks and Membership

With the re-launch of Ballistic we are excited to bring a whole range of new products and benefits.

EXTENDED editions are eBook extensions to the printed books. Every year we get 8,000 or so entries but we only have room for about 360 images in the book. With EXPOSÉ 12 we will bring out an extended edition as an eBook in the first quarter after the print book ships. It will feature lots of additional images and information in a format similar to the printed book.


MEMBERSHIP includes a year's exclusive access to artists, judges and other industry leaders via a series of monthly webinars through the year. Membership will also give you access and discounts to the growing range of EXPOSÉ products being released over the next 12 months.
