    Happy New Year all,

    Time to start thinking about the next print exchange, though no one is chaffing at the bit to get started on this round as there has been in the past. Guess there has been too much happening in the world that has been distracting us from this exchange.

    I am open to ideas that make this more interesting if any one has them. I noticed that at the start of round five I asked if January was a good time to start the next round and with there being no responses I have assumed it is just fine. I have also edged into February for 1 week to give the best part of a month to register interest.

    How it works:

    - Groups will be of similar/equal numbers not exceeding 12 people depending on how many people sign up
    - Each person makes a number of identical prints for the others in their group and posts it to the organizer (me) along with an info sheet on how you made the print and what ever other information you wish to share
    - The organiser collates everyone's prints and sends you back one print from each person in the group.

    The rules:

    - Prints can be up to 8x10inch
    - Prints must be unmounted
    - Prints must be from analog media (ie. negative/transparency, film/paper), commercial printing is acceptable as are inkjet prints as long as it was taken on analog media. However photos taken with a digital camera are not permitted.
    - You have to tell us how you made the print
    - You must post the prints to the organizer (address will be PM'd after sign-up) before the close date, include stamped self addressed envelope that is large enough for 8x10 prints. You are responsible for ensuring correct postage and adequate protection for the prints from the postage system, water damage etc. Whatever protection you provide for the prints will be the same for the prints we return to you.
    - International participants can send me some funds via Paypal to cover return postage of their set of prints.
    - Late dispatches of prints to the organizer for what ever reason is discouraged as it delays the return of all prints for that group. If prints are going to be late, that participant ('Laggard') is to advise all in the group, and if the others so decide the organizer will return the collected prints, and the 'Laggard' will be responsible for sending out their prints to the individuals of the group. The 'Laggard' will also have a set of prints held with the organizer that they have to arrange postage for.

    The dates:

    Round # 6 - January/April 2012.
    Sign up by 5th of February.
    Prints made and sent to me no later than 31st March.
    Prints exchanged and returned for comments during the month of April.

    Round #7 - May/August
    Sign up by 31st of May.
    Prints made and sent to me no later than 31st July.
    Prints exchanged and returned for comments during the month of August.

    Round #8 - September/December
    Sign up by 30th of September.
    Prints made and sent to me no later than 30th November.
    Prints exchanged and returned for comments during the month of December.

    OK You're in.

    We have had Canadian's in the past participate. All in all it will cost you about CA$20 in postage each way give or take a few bucks. It least that was what it cost the last time we had Canadian participation.

    We have a template that some of us use, and others don't. It is a bit like a check list of things you might want to tell us about the print you have submitted. Of course you can say as much or as little as you like it is entirely up to you. I will get your email and send it out.

    I think the 'last minute' came and went, so are we looking at one group of eleven?

    1 group, 11 participants, 10 prints to be made and sent in. You can send in 11 prints, I will just return a print back to you self that is all.

    Let the fun begin.

    Alrighty, fun indeed! I'm just wiping down my darkroom after testing some new papers, going to scrub up for bed while they're in the final wash then hang them up before I keel over.

    I've got a few ideas of what I might share this time, going to be a tough choice!

    4 weeks since the last post. How is everyone ticking along with their prints?

    I will have mine done by the end of this long weekend. Did a run of 8x10 and also 30 odd postcard sized prints of the same image.
