RFF POSTCARD PROJECT part 7!

Hey folks,

It's been a while and I think we are due for another postcard exchange. I thought I'll start the thread and I also volunteer to collect the addresses. Rob who has been organizing these in the past had a pretty good system so I am just going to adopt it for this round. I have contacted Rob to ask him if he is okay with me taking over this round and since I haven't heard back I decided to just go ahead. I am mostly going to use the text Rob developed because it is excellent. So here we go:

The idea is that we each make postcards of one of our own photos and send that card to everyone else who is playing. The same image for everyone. After we have all mailed our cards, we will each get a small photo show from around the world. And we will all have the same exhibit.

I will collect real addresses from whoever wants to join in.

I will NOT use those addresses for anything other than this project.

I will accept addresses UNTIL MARCH 1 and then send a list of all the addresses to each of you who are playing.

We all then will have another month to shoot, make, and mail postcards.

We each mail the same card to all the other folks on the list. So, if there are 40 people again, we each would mail 39 cards. Of the same image.

This is an international exercise and you all should keep that in mind.

I set no subject or gear restrictions. But these are postcards which means the image will be seen by all the people who handle the mail as it goes from you to the rest of us.

How the cards are made is up to each person; I have printed my own and have also used an on-line company to print my cards.

We are usually around 40-50 people.

To keep the mechanics of organizing this as simple as possible please PM me with RFF Postcard 7 as the subject line.

If you want to participate, I need you to send to me the following info:
Your name and address (including your country) in the correct format for your country.
your RFF username.
your email (so I can send you the full list of participants)

I will collect addresses from now until I wake up and check my messages on March 1.

I will take a day or two to make sure I have the list correct and will email the list to all of us.

Plan on mailing your cards out NO sooner than April 1.

And please have them all in the mail by May 1.

A few last things:

If the numbers of us who want to do this gets very large, I will let us all know in this thread and we can then decide what to do.

Thanks for joining in everyone!

If you all have any questions and or suggestions, please post them here in this thread!

This is one of my favourite things about RFF and I am looking forward to the postcards.

Cheers!

Bojan

At the risk of sounding like an advertising, for the past three rounds I used moo.com and was VERY happy with the results. I printed both black and white and colour cards and both were excellent.

Printing cards in the darkroom is a nice touch and other participants certainly appreciate the effort, but if you have to make 40 of the same photograph, it might get a bit tedious

I have used Moo in the past , agree, very god results.
being that Im only printing one image, it cant be that hard, can it.?
Repetitive, but not hard. should blow by them in no time once I get my base exposure for the first one, or I might go crazy, either way fun times.

Thanks for organizing! I have been in all of them and they are fun.

I have used MOO.com to print cards and have been happy with the product they produce. Mailing costs for the USA is 0.35 cents domestic and $1.20 for International postage. To print 50 cards usually runs about $42.00, so there are some expenses when participating but the cards received from around the world make it all worth it.

Hopefully we have another great turn out from the RFF membership for Part 7 of the RFF Postcard Project!

PM on the way in a few moments ......

How frowned upon is it to indicate an interest in participating, but in the end not be able to do so? I would very much like to participate, but I've been out of work for some time and unfortunately I'm not seeing that changing anytime soon. Should I say I'm in, and hope for a change in fortunes? Or sit this one out? Thank you kindly.

This might be just me, but I'd say throw your name in. Being out of work is tough. If all turns out well on the job front, it'll be a nice treat. If you need to withdraw, just send me a quiet private message and I can take care of it Nobody will be upset about it, many of us have been in similar situation.

Good luck in your job search.

It looks like there are about 25 or so members signed up so far, looking good.

Hopefully more will join in on the Postcard exchange!

I'd love to join in again too. I think I have missed a couple. I had a cerebral aneurysm last year and have forgotten many things. The other day a noticed a pile of postcards in the office and thought "Wow, I must be very popular and have many friends". Then I noticed they all had something to do with an RFF postcard project and I went googling and found out about it online. Worked backwards and assumed I must be ricnak. So there, count me in.
