Black and White
The 20 x 20 best Black and White photographs.
We currently publish a photo book as a collective work, an App for iTunes, Apple Store with the best Black and White photographs, by 20 talented photographers, to be seen on iPads, iPhones and iPodsTouch.
This Edition is limited to 20 professional and amateur photographers, specialized in Black and White photography, with a maximum of 20 photographs per photographer.
The target is a market of 500 million Internet users, worldwide. The sale is made by Apple on iTunes.
2048 x 1496 px maximum (Landscape)
The formula is:
A – B – C = D
D – E = F
F = G + H
A = Price including VAT – Sales price in iTunes
B = VAT
C = The Bank charges (change + transfer fees + administration’s costs supported by Apple)
D = Net price
E = Apple’s margin 30%
F = 100% Royalties
G = Royalties for Royal: 20% of F
H = Royalties for the authors: 80% of F
Specificities and functions of the App
We open to every participant, as from his registration, a DropBox account with, in this account, 8 folders, including in each a README explaining perfectly the procedure. The time of realization is 30 days maximum (allotted time to the Photographer). If this time is over, the participation of the author will be cancelled, his set-up fees will be paid to a NGO (NON-GOVERNMENTAL ORGANIZATION).
The working participation of the author is very small: supply of 10 to 20 photos in the required sizes and format and a text of 650 characters and spaces (biography). The layout and the programming are realized by Royal AppBooks.
We open for all the participants, a collective DropBox account in which a PDF will be accessible by all, which will show the layout realized by Royal.
Temporary IPA (preview)
Before the on-line publishing, a temporary IPA (file iTunes) will be put at the disposal of every participant, allowing him(her) to see on iPad, iPhone and/or iPod Touch the functioning of the Application.
This IPA will serve as “Prepress proofing” to be signed by every photographer.
We ask for a contribution to the costs of 10 € per published page, per author.
Example: if an author wishes to publish 10 pages + 1 Page of biography, the set-up fees will thus be 100 € (+VAT 15 %)
These fees are the only participation of the photographer. These fees will be paid back to the author by his first royalties.
