For any questions not answered here, please contact Perry Mann via email: perrymann73 at

Are you planning to bring back the Ball?
Yes, we are.

Are you involved with, or endorsing any Halloween party or event for 2014
No, we are not doing that this year (and we will probably never do that again).

Are you guys doing anything for 2014?

We are hard at work compiling footage for our 30 Year Documentary entitled "The Exotic Erotic Ball - XXX Years and Counting."

Didn't you plan to release the documentary a few years ago?

Yes. It was delayed due to the sad and untimely death of our great and talented friend, Zalman King.

How is the documentary now being produced?
We have secured a top filmmaker and editor. That team is controlling the content, not us. Our goal is to help create an acclaimed film, one that covers the Ball and its history in an objective manner.

If I have a great story involving the Ball, can I submit it for inclusion into the documentary?

You can send us an email to initiate discussion, but there are no guarantees - the film covers 30 years of history and we don't want it to run too long. Some submissions might not make it into the film, but might make it into the "Extra's". If the documentarian is interested in your story, he'll reach back.

How do I get a copy of the documentary?
Join our mailing list, and stay tuned for an update. We are considering offering the documentary and many other cool things as rewards in a crowd funding campaign on Kickstarter.

So - is the plan to bring back the Ball after the documentary is ready for release?
Yes. That is what Perry wants to do... so it shall be done. Look for us in 2015.

All of us here are so grateful for the emails and kind words.
We miss the Ball at least as much as you do. When it comes back, it will have been worth the wait.

If you are not on the Mailing List, please join now for updates.

Terms and Conditions: Exotic Erotic EXPO
For the EXPO portion of the two-day Festival, which takes place Friday, October 22, from 4 p.m. to midnight, and Saturday, October 23, from noon to 6 p.m., photographers and media personal will be automatically added to the ALL ACCESS press list upon pre-registration.

You MUST pre-register. To receive the EXPO PHOTOGRAPHER CREDENTIAL, you still must complete and submit the Photography Contract and provide copies of your images within ten days of the show.

Your name will be on the PRESS WILL CALL list at the main entrance to the Expo, during Expo Hours. You will submit your Photography Contract at the press desk.

Remember - the preceding was for the Expo, not the Ball.

Terms and Conditions: Exotic Erotic BALL
For the BALL, which takes place Saturday, October 23, from 8 p.m. til 2 a.m., we are much more restrictive, so PLEASE READ CAREFULLY.

Freelance Photographers - The BALL is fortunate to have developed relationships with a small group of freelance photographers over the years - you know who you are, and for the most part, we know who you are and have already invited you to shoot the event. We value these relationships, but we are not in need of more photographers to shoot the 31st Anniversary Ball. If you are one of the freelance photographers who has shot the Ball in the past, provided copies of your images which the Ball has used, and somehow been overlooked in the invitation process, contact us and we will review your application for ALL ACCESS admission.

To all others: A few years ago, we loosened the policy about allowing camera's into the event. You do not need a pass to roam the event and shoot - any ticket-holder can do this. So - if you are a ticket-holding Freelance photographer looking to shoot the event, you may contact us for a PHOTOGRAPHER CREDENTIAL, which will increase your access points, and can be acquired at the Press Room onsite. This PHOTOGRAPHER CREDENTIAL will NOT get you entry into the BALL - only the ticket you purchased will do that. To receive this PHOTOGRAPHER CREDENTIAL, you still must complete and submit the Photography Contract and provide copies of your images within ten days of the show.

PLEASE NOTE: We do not provide credentials for photographer assistants. No exceptions. They must purchase either a General Admission or VIP Ticket.

If you are a journalist or photographer on assignment from a mainstream media outlet, such as a magazine or a newspaper, you MUST provide a hardcopy assignment letter from your editor detailing pre and post coverage specifics, outline, and/or commitment to be comped admission and approved for ALL ACCESS PRESS and/or PHOTOGRAPHER CREDENTIALS. If you are a journalist or freelance photographer on assignment from a Blog or online EZine, your media outlet must feature advance coverage about the 31st Anniversary Exotic Erotic Ball in order to be considered for a comped admission and granted ALL ACCESS PRESS and/or PHOTOGRAPHER CREDENTIALS.

Once again, you can always buy a ticket and shoot the event on your own, with access to all points accessible to all ticket-holders.
