With just a half-dozen or so participants, it could work like this:
In November we all send a postcard of one of our own pictures to Alex who will send out to all of us a postcard of one of his pictures.
In December we all send one to another member who will will likewise send out one to everyone.
And so on.

We could fold it up after the six or eight months. Or we could continue.

But with larger numbers of participants, this method is pricey.

This would be the order:

November - Alex

December - Philip

January - Phil

February - Robert

March - Graham

April - Mike

May - Julio

June - Pablo

So I will proceed to send my address to you all and this week I will print my postcard for 7 :)

Any comments or suggestions are welcome :)

About which postcards,
The ones the month-guy sends: I have choose the same for you all this time, it will be easier for the person who has to send 7 at the time.
To be sent to the month-guy (this time me, I will try to find out which one from you I would like to have and write you as soon as I can).

Does it work or is it too much complicated?

I just got to thinking that maybe my Word program (or possibly Publisher) has a template for printing postcards, so I might be able to just add it to the back of the photo of the month without any sticky add ons.

I bought some postcard backs a few years ago and I am still using them. A plastic cover peels off, leaving the sticky-sided paper postal card. It is convenient, but I have seen lots of homemade postcards, too.
