Default Print Exchange - December 2020

In the past we haven't held an Exchange in December because of the unreliability of the post over Christmas and this year it may be in even more demand than usual.

I can't see the Royal Mail employing the hordes of students over the Christmas period as they did in the '60s. I well remember the rooms in temporary sorting offices piled high with undelivered (and undeliverable) post including rotting turkeys.

Unless there is a high demand (>10 participants) there won't be an exchange in December and the next one will be in January 2021.

Happy Christmas, Mike

I would still most certainly like to take part in the December print exchange round, even with the prospect of a postal delay.

I'd take part in a December print exchange if it happens although maybe worth combining December's and January's?

I would be up for it, if numbers are sufficient. It’s been a few months since I took part in Print Exchange and it might give me much needed motivation.

There are 9 prospective participants including my good self and it is sufficient to proceed. Hopefully there may be more signing up over next week. And so:

The Print exchange for December 2020 Round, No. 124 will be taking place. Here are the 'Rules' should there be any new participants.

All those who want to participate please post here and send me a PM to confirm your address if I do not already have it or you have changed it.
Closing date for registering your entry is Monday 30 November, 2020. Latest date for sending your print is Thursday 31 December, 2020. I am only looking for one print in a month.

I would add that if you do join the exchange and later encounter problems which prevent you from completing then please contact me by PM. Sometimes we do get confronted by the unexpected but if I and the other two people involved (sender and receiver) know you have a problem then it does take out the uncertainty in our minds and perhaps find a solution.

Print Exchange Rules
To start with you will have the remainder of this month to sign up, the cut-off being the last day of the month. If you wish to be included then make a post on this thread to that effect, and at the same time send me a PM with your name, and address.
Head the PM with the title “FADU Print Exchange Round”, and add the round number.
At the beginning of next month those that have given me their details will be provided with the name and address of one other member to whom you will be expected to send your print before the end of the month.

You will not be told who has been asked to send you a print, so that it remains a surprise until you receive it. When you send your print please post to that effect on this thread, but do not say to whom you have sent it. We like to maintain the element of surprise until the last moment. When you receive a print please post to that effect on this thread, you may say who it is from and comment on it if you wish.

Anyone failing to send out their print without good reason will be excluded from future events. If you run into difficulty in this respect then please let me know.
If you wish to participate then confirm your intention on this thread and also send me a PM with your name and address.
The selection process will be as random as possible, and I will try and ensure that you receive a print from a different person in each round although eventually there will be some repetition.

There is a Gallery for posting your print after it has arrived with the recipient. It is not compulsory but it does make the Exchange more interesting to all members of the forum and displays your work to others.

Rules
• Your print must have been printed from a negative exposed in a film camera
• Inkjet, digitally printed photographs, or computer manipulated images are not allowed
• Your print paper can be any size that will fit in an envelope up to A4 size
• The image may be any size or format
• Paper type and finish is your choice, as is the subject
• Alternative processes, toning or other treatments are all accepted
• It is recommended you provide some background information with your print to assist your recipient as this encourages interchange
• Don’t forget to enclose your details and FADU name so your recipient can thank you
• You are only responsible for the cost of posting your own print
• Please ensure you dispatch your print within the round month
• You must enjoy the experience
• If you have any queries or problems - please contact me as soon as possible.
Mike
