    September arrived, so it is time to start the next round of the postcard exchange.

    Here is the schedule for round 18:

    September: sign up
    October and November: print and send
    December: breather

    Please sign up by sending a PM to me containing your name, address (including the country - this is an international exchange) and the number of cards you are able to send or say maximum for the maximum possible number of cards. If you have been in the exchange earlier and if your address is the same, you can sing up just with giving the number of cards here in the thread. No PM needed in this case.

    As in the last rounds I will post lists of participants in this thread every once in a while. If you signed in (or if you think so) please come back to this thread and check if your name is on the list. If the name should be on the list but is not, then let me know. Once the address lists are sent out early in October I can not do any changes.

    Please read on:

    Not all participants of the last round have been able to send out the cards. For whatever reasons, if you have not fulfilled your last rounds commitment, send your cards before you sign in for this round. Just be fair.

    I am looking forward to this round.

    Now for those new to the postcard exchange, here is how it all works out.

    First: It is fun!

    Second: When sign up is over, I will prepare address lists which I will PM to the participants. You will have to send a card to every address on that list and you should receive back a card from everyone on that list. So if you sign up for e.g. 20 cards you will have to send 20 cards and you should receive 20 cards back.

    Third: Did I mention that it is fun?

    Cheers
    Ruediger

    Great, yet another round! 25 for me, please.

    You did forget to mention one thing, though: it's addictive! :smile:

    Hi Ruediger

    My name is Boyd and I am a Postcard Exchange addict ... and I don't wish to be cured, so please put me down for 30 again this round ...

    The quality of the cards that I received in Round 17 was fabulous. I am also really looking forward to finding little gems in my letter box again very soon.

    Thanks again for co-ordinating the exchange.

    Thanks for organising this - I did a couple of the early rounds (5 & 6) I think and have since had an enforced break from photography.

    I now have a productive darkroom again. I was printing some postcards the other evening for something else which got me thinging about the APUG postcard exchange and how much I enjoyed it before! Looking forward to this round - now just which image am I going to print...
