    [Revitalized] Blind Exchange -- Intro

    Welcome to the Blind Exchange.

    In a nutshell, here's how the exchange works. I collect a list of
    participants, then arrange them in random order and send each person
    the name of the person after them on the list (with the last one
    getting the first name). Each person is expected to send one
    photography "product" to the person whose name they receive. Their
    intended recipient could be located anywhere from the same city to
    the other side of the world, so be prepared to send your photography
    on a long, one-way trip. As participants receive the work of their
    fellow members, they are encouraged to post thanks, critiques,
    comments, and discussion to this thread.

    The Blind Exchange will run in three month cycles:


    • Month 1: members volunteer to participate.
    • Month 2: products are made and sent.
    • Month 3: rest.

    This time around, members will volunteer to participate in January.
    Photography will be made and sent in February. March will be a
    month of rest before the next cycle.

    Each member who participates in the blind exchange should agree to
    the following participant expectations:
    • Participants will be asked to send one analog photography
      product by the last day of month 2 to a user whose name,
      userid and mailing address they will receive on APUG as a
      private message.

    • "analog photography product" could include a minilab
      print from a slide or negative, a polaroid print, a handmade
      proof or custom print, a contact sheet , slide or alt
      process print. I'd also like to open up the possibilities
      to negatives, if someone wants to give up a negative for
      the exchange, it will give them a chance to do things like
      share the effects of different film/developer combinations
      or exposure approaches on the negative.

    • Each participant must supply a name and mailing address
      at which they can receive their product. Additionally, each
      participant agrees that their own name, userid and mailing
      address may be released to other APUG members in the
      exchange.

    • Each participant acknowledges by joining that they might
      draw a name and address of an exchangee that is on the
      other side of the world, and they should be prepared to
      send their product that far.

    • [Added 03Jan2005] All products will be sent on a one-way
      trip. The actual negatives, prints or transparencies will
      become the property of the recipients, although the rights
      to the image will remain the property of the original
      photographer.

    • If a participant commits to send a photo product out and
      for some reason , isn't able to send it out by the last
      day of month 2 in a cycle, they'll have to sit out a cycle
      while they attempt to resolve the issue(s) that prevented
      them from following through on their commitment.

    • [updated 29DEC2004] If a participant doesn't receive
      their print by day 15 of month 3 in a cycle, they should
      PM the moderator, who will verify that the sender isn't
      able to send the product in a reasonable period of time,
      then if they aren't, drop their sender from eligibility for
      the next cycle and ask for volunteers to send a print to
      the member who didn't get a product.

    Additionally, I think these are reasonable expectations of the moderator:

    • The moderator should randomize the list of participants,
      and ensure that a PM is sent to each participant by the
      7th day of month 2 with the name, userid and mailing address
      of their intended recipient.

    • The moderator shall make a reasonable effort to provide
      as much circulation as possible within the list, and to
      ensure that once someone draws a given name, they won't
      draw the same name again for at least three cycles.

    Please send all suggestions for changes as a PM to me (kwmullet).

    I don't mind at all. I send international packages several times a month.
