Also, I'd rather not ship outside the US so maybe a US contingent and a Eu one.
I'm not keen on that one. It only costs me a few pence more to send a print to the USA than the rest of Europe.
How about using the rules for the standard group print exchange -- they're well tried and tested.
However, if some people are concerned that they are beginners then we could use the alternative print exchange system. People list if they are experienced, intermediate or a beginner and the organiser sorts people into groups so that there is a mixture of abilities.
Half the fun of the postcard thing is receiving pictures from (and sending to) faraway places, so personally I'd hope we don't separate EU/US.
Also purely my personal opinion, I think the absolute beginners and the experts should be 'mixed up'. It's not a competition (is it?,) so as a beginner I'd consider it an honour and inspiration to receive an expertly created print. Of course the expert who receives my rubbish one may not be so keen, but not everyone can be a winner
However it's organised anyway I'm sure it'll be great - looking forward to it!
I'm with Sly on this one, I don't mind sending overseas and it's really kind of neat to get a print from someone in another country.
As far as the beginner/expert thing, in the Alt print exchange you're asked to rate yourself (Expert/Intermediate/Beginner) and then the groups are divided rather evenly with all three in one group. I don't really see a reason to do that but if others want that, I'll go along with it.
