As for your question, we send a camera around the world, it should take a couple of months, and usually takes a couple of years. Everyone shoots an image and then it comes back to either Sile or myself, we process the film, and post it in the Gallery here at APUG. If you do a little research into the threads in this forum http://www.apug.org/forums/forum184/ you will see we usually have a great time.
Contact Sile if you wish to join this round. As a subscriber, you have access to the Gallerys.
