    Are we doing this this year? WTCD is Saturday (20th)

    Just wondering if we have people participating in World Toy Camera Day (5th year anniversary this year!) on Saturday 20 October (2007)... I'm too young of an apugger to remember this exchange, I've just seen this forum as quiet and dead as the toy cameras forum is sometimes

    I'm interested. I wasn't around last year, either (new member).
    The Holga and I will be in Paris! Ooh la la !

    Heather,

    We did try it a for a couple years, but the number of participants not honouring their commitments has made the original organizer weary of trying it again. Though, I have to say, in my case, that images I did get I enjoyed greatly.

    If there is enough demand, I am willing to step to the plate to organize this. But since the day is nearly upon us, people will have up to Monday after the day to sign up.

    My suggestion is this.
    • Sign up in this thread - until Monday
    • When the sign up period closes, I'll organize everyone into groups. I don't know the size the groups but lets say at the most 5 per group.
    • Participants will then send a private mail (PM) to each member of their group with their real name and address
    • You will then send a print to those members of your group only
    • Let's say everyone should send their prints by the end of November

    How's that?

    Oh yeah, everyone needs to have used a toy camera for their image capture and the prints have to be traditional. Lab prints are OK that were made from film scans as long as the prints are traditional - for example on Kodak or Fuji Crystal paper.

    Regards, Art.

    At the moment, the group looks to be 3 people...
    I just thought because I'll be printing for the flickr group for hot prizes, I could print for an exchange while I'm at it.

    Well, even if it's just the 3 of us, I'm willing to exchange if you two are. I've always wanted to do an exchange with a fluffy penguin ...

    I am willing to participate, as long as my trusty WinX camera has delivered something worthwhile. I'll know in a couple of days. For the moment, keep me signed in, I've shot many different things and I guess chances are on my side.

    Good luck, George I shot 1 1/2 rolls and managed to get quite a few nice ones. I'm having a hard time choosing!

    Welcome George! I hope you find some good images and I suspect you will. To Janet and Cath, we're in for a treat with George. I've done an exchange with him and he makes beutiful images.

    I shot 5 rolls. My rolls are still in the lab and I won't be able to pick them up until next week ... so I'm anxiously waiting. It was a good day to bring out the Holga, and the Fisheye, and the Action Sampler ...

    Missed it! I was platinum printing from 8pm on Friday to 9am on Saturday and the rest of Saturday was a wash -- even though if I had the camera and film handy, I would have gotten some good ones of my boys at the beach late that afternoon. Dang...
