1. I was in issue #?. When will it be available for print?
Catapult was initially started as JUST an online digital mag. However, with the enormous growth I was bombarded with requests for it to be available in print. Every issue PRIOR to starting print (first print offered was issue #6), needs to be gone back into and reworked for print. With the digital, links to your sites were clickable, not written out. So each page has to be gone back into, tweaked and adjusted to fit for print. Including image adjustments, image replacement due to low res requirements that were allowed for the online version. It takes time. What took me a month to create, in the midst of creating the current issue, trying to gain more advertisers, updating the site when I can, doing promotions, collecting artwork for the current issue, responding to enormous amounts of emails and request, networking to further the growth of Catapult, I take as much time possible to get them done. I thank everyone for your patience. Please know that it is being done and I will post as soon as they are ready.
2. I was in issue #?. Will you send me a printed version? How about Digital version?
I WOULD LOVE TO!!! However, I cannot afford it. I have to pay out of my own pocket for the proofs, promotions and many other things to further the growth of Catapult. Any profit (mag sells, advertising etc), which I keep to a minimum on print markup, goes back into Catapult. Catapult is still new and is growing rapidly. As soon as I can do this, trust me I WILL!
Digital? I tried that. Found people selling it and sharing it online. I work hard to keep this mag going. Enough said.
3. I want to be in the mag!
The only person stopping you is….YOU!
4. What are the art submission guidelines?
I have painstakingly taken time to place this information and make it readily available. Please take time to explore the site, Facebook pages….all you need it right there!
5. When is the mag published?
I do my BEST to get the DIGITAL version out on the 1st of each month. HOWEVER, getting the printed version together takes a little longer. I upload and wait for a proof. I want you to get the best of Catapult!
6. What is the deadline for art submissions?
Submissions are accepted the 1st thru the 15th of every month or until max submissions (30) has been reached.
7. How often can I submit?
Minimum of 6 issues after first issue that you were in (not including Special Editions). However, new submissions will get preference. MUST SHARE THE SHINE!
8. I was told that max submissions have been met and my submission was not accepted. Will you keep my submission?
No. I have very limited space for all the large files that I deal with for each issue. Transferring them back and forth from external drives, things get lost. I do not want anyone mad at me because I lost their submission in the shuffle.
9. How do I know if I was accepted?
When time permits, I try to respond to the submissions. If not, when you get a proof.
10. I sent in a submission and did not hear anything back and was not in the next issue?
Did you make sure your submission met ALL submission guidelines?
