    Australia and New Zealand Picture Exchange Round #8

    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 returned 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 #9 - January/April 2013
    Sign up by 31st of January.
    Prints made and sent to me no later than 31st March.
    Prints exchanged and returned for comments during the month of April.

    Round #10 - May/August 2013
    Sign up by 30th of June.
    Prints made and sent to me no later than 31st August.
    Prints exchanged and returned for comments during the month of September.

    Round #11 - September/December 2013
    Sign up by 30th of September.
    Prints made and sent to me no later than 30th November.

    yep, count me in.

    Hoffy must be keen considering I still have all his prints! (I don't think we'll combine postage again; I got the pack the day after we'd arranged to meet).

    Glad to have you again Bob. How's the northern Winter treating you? We got our usual bushfires and in some cases, arsonists that were responsible have already been caught. A good heat wave has hit the country nice and early in our summer. We are in for a shocker I feel. My darkroom is now perfect for lith work, as I can hold 33°C all day without external heating. A real trial when I try to do B&W reversal movie film at 22°C:sad:.

    Weather here has been quite warm with a couple of cold snaps here and there. Around -8 Celsius these days. Supposed to turn cold by the end of the week, which is just dandy because I will be on the beach in Mexico:munch: I've recovered nicely from arthroscopic surgery to repair torn cartilage in my knee. I think some snorkeling is good physiotherapy, don't you think:cool:

    Looking forward to this exchange as I have the past exchanges I've been involved with you guys (any gals?). I'm considering trying something different; it's not difficult, just different. Not going to spill the beans; you'll have to wait:whistling:

    @Andrew K. No worries about being tied up over the festive season. Same happened to me. I still have to write my comments for the last exchange which just did not happen on the 31st. I made a point of processing all of 16mm B&W reversal before the end of the new year. Started on the 23rd, finished last Saturday. 1,000ft (10rolls). I really do need to build that processor instead of using the LOMO tank.

    Thanks again, Andy, for organizing another round. Now it's time to play:D Like I said before, I'm going to experiment with a simple but different idea this time. If all goes well, I won't have to enact Plan B! What is it you ask? You will have to wait:wink:
