We'll send you full instructions, but in a nutshell:

  2. Request a unique code from us using the form on the left
  3. Write the unique code on the camera somewhere, and this messsage:
    Hello, thanks for picking me up! I'm part of a global photography project. Take a few photos and then pass me on. Then visit to find out what to do next
  4. Stick the camera in clear re-sealable bag
  5. Leave the camera somewhere, or hand it to a person, taking a digital photo of the drop or exchange.
  6. Write to us, and tell us where you left it, along with the photos
