    APUG UK Print Exchange Round 16.

    It's time to kick off the sign up for Round 16 of the UK Print Exchange. If you signed up for round 15 but have not yet received a print can you inform me via PM. Anyone, who hasn't met their round 15 commitment will be excluded from this and future exchanges until they have sent their print.


    Exchange rules are as follows:

    Please register interest in this thread and send the address you want the print sent to via PM to me (with subject line "UK round 16" please). Interest should be registered by the end of SATURDAY 20th SEPTEMBER after which I will place all names in a hat and pick them out at random. I have kept a record of previous rounds matches so I'll try to ensure that people send prints to different people this round.

    You will then receive a PM with the address of the person that you should send your print to.

    Your details will have been passed to another in the group who should send you a print.

    You will not be expected to send a print to the person that sends you one - just to the name and address that you have been provided with.

    Rules.
    1. Your print must have originated from a film/ in-camera paper negative (eg no digital process at any point please), but any intermediate traditional stages are acceptable .
    2. Your print should be on 10x8 paper (or larger if you wish, just dont expect others to send you anything bigger than 10 x 8 ).
    3. Paper type and finish is your choice, as is the subject.
    4. The image may be any size or format.
    5. Inkjet prints or computer manipulated images are ineligible.
    6. The addition of explanatory notes is optional, but your recipient may appreciate some background information, and if you do not say who it is from, they cannot thank you for it.
    7. Enjoy the experience.
    8. There is no expectation for critiques or comments to be made, although there is nothing to stop you asking for this if you wish.
    9. Failure to honor the agreement and not send a print will result in a strike, 3 strikes and your out. Past failings will be counted.

    If you have a spare copy of your print then Simon Galley at Ilford / Harmon Technology would love to see it. I'm sure Simon will put it on the company notice board for everyone to see. Simon's address is:

    HARMAN technology Limited,
    Town Lane,
    Mobberley,
    Knutsford,
    CHESHIRE.
    WA16 7JL

    Marked : For the attention of Simon.R.Galley

    will not be back until about 12 Oct. So will be sending print after then.

    Right, that's it I've done the draw, so everyone participating in Round 16 of the UK print exchange should now have received an PM from me detailing where to send their print. Please let me know if you've not received a PM,

    Hello All,

    Received a nice print from mealers, I think. Porth Nanven also known as Cot Valley. Thanks for the technical details; a lot of work has gone into this print and a long exposure in camera too. Thanks again.

    Regards Daniel

    And indeed arrived. Steve, these are brilliant. I'm curious to know if your great grandad also took a 'belt and braces' approach to life. :D

    I'm sure he did. I will have to go and have another look at the photograph.

    When I knew him, he was in his eighties so his ploughing days were over. He did have the obligatory 'old man's trousers' though. The type where the waistband fits just under the armpits.

    I have never seen these sold anywhere. I imagine that once you reach 75, you receive a telegram telling you where to buy them.

    For anyone curious enough, there are some scans of the prints in my gallery now.

    Really?

    It turned up yesterday. I didn't think our postal service was that quick.


    The print is an intriguing abstract image of....... something. If I don't work it out in a few few weeks, I'll ask!

    Thanks,

    Steve.
