At Bakarmax some of the best ideas have come from the internal team but also from interns and contributors. Karejwa – our highest-performing comic so far was illustrated by Ankit Kapoor, an ex-intern and contributor. We have so far published comics by more than 50 contributors and some of them have worked with us on paid projects.

As soon as you publish with Bakarmax, you are also introduced to the larger Bakarmax family – our team, our contributors, ex-interns, our clients and our most important of all Bakarmax fans – We reach over a lakh people through our various channels.

Another key support we have is – we take high performing comics to Animation. We pitch it to brands and OTT platforms using our 39K Youtube subscribers as leverage(Haven’t subscribed? Do it now!). A good example of this is the Char Ram film we made with Digit

The Editorial process – In the olden times, creators used to work with editors. People who gave feedback, and suggestions and helped polish your idea. Today, the creator works with the best guess, which is not always right. We at Bakarmax believe in the editorial process and its power to improve your content. If you pitch to us, an editor will collaborate with you in making the comic

Currently, Bakarmax does not own copyright over your content. And we do not pay contributors. Exceptional cases have been there for high performers and ambitious projects.
