Do Not Destroy This Chain Letter!

1000 Postcards is a rather ambitious undertaking dreamed up by Jeannie Kim and Hunter Tura and sponsored by The Architectural League of New York. They’re looking for 1000 pieces of unpublished work from “relatively unknown designers” to make up a set of 1000 postcards. The cards will be sent to 1000 relatively known architects, urbanists, academics, curators, journalists, and critics. The 1000 images will then be recollected for a book and exhibition with comments from the recipients. From ArchLeague:

Our hope is that we will receive images from all over the world and our plan is to randomly disseminate these images back out into a global context, making unlikely connections, and creating unforeseen acquaintanceships. While this is admittedly a utopian proposal, our aim is to connect fresh ideas with those individuals who contribute to the development of independent careers in architecture.

Some fine print we’ll highlight for you: At least one member of a team must be a student or recent graduate (since 1995) in a college or university design degree program. All other rules and regulations here.
