Yeah! Sounds like fun. I sent you a PM.
So far I have received entry PM's from the following:
Christopher Walrath (I am participating)
That's a good start for less than a day and a half. Thanks for joining in all. And everyone else, you are welcome to do the same. The more, the merrier.

Lab prints from Kodachrome scans
Would lab prints from Kodachrome scans qualify for this exchange or prints should be darkroom only?
Bogdan, I am not trying to step in Christopher's shoes, and he will be able to clarify better than I can, however, the very words of Christopher are as follows, and I believe that they answer your question:
"Your print should be the VERY BEST print that you personally can make. I personally want to discourage prints that are not the personal work of the participant"
...and this is aside the fact, that I'd expect an optically printed output.

Yes that's what I read from his guidelines too, I just thought that prints from Kodachrome might be an exception.

It says 'discourage' because I did not want to exclude anyone at all from this exchange. It should at least not be a print made from a didgtal file or scan. Instead it should be created with traditional papers and chemistry. Silver, not silicon. If you have the capacity to print I would hope that you would to make any print by those means. It is up to you and I would like to welcome your participation.

This shows some of the difficulty transparency / slide photographers have. Many don't have the equipment or chemistry to print optically.
My suggestion is to accept prints from a Lambda or Lightjet. This way the image was captured on film and printed using wet chemistry on photographic paper Like Kodak Endura Metalic or Fuji Crystal Archive not an inkjet. Also, I'd get the print made at a professional lab vs Wal-Mart. It's the best compromise if you can't print Ilfochromes.

I will accede to Art's knowledge here. If the print meets Art's criteria, Bogdan, then that would be fine. I don't think you can PM under 25 posts so just email me you entry if you wish to participate under those conditions. firstname.lastname@example.org
I will add Art's little bit to the first post in this thread. As I said, I did not want to exclude any film photographers and this seems perfectly acceptable.
[edit: I did some research and Lambda/Light Jet printing is perfectly acceptable for those who shot reversal films and do not have the means to personally make prints.]

Tomorrow I'll Pm you my address and who I sent my prints to, and who sent to me his prints.
Just a note: I remember everybody to declare a low value (less than 10usd, possibly "no value") on the envelope (or parcel) to avoid problems with customs.
Of course only for international shippings.
