      Calling for photo submissions!

      In celebration of Peace Corps Week (Feb. 26 through March 2, 2007),
      the Peace Corps San Francisco Regional Office (serving Northern
      California, Hawaii, and Nevada) is launching a traveling RPCV
      photography exhibit.

      We are looking for your best and favorite photo that captures your
      Peace Corps experience. Was it the stunning view from your village
      hilltop? The ribbon-cutting of your computer center? The children
      peering through your window? The women who taught you to weave?

      You decide! If you'd like to participate, please email your photo* to
      peacecorpssfro@... along with:

      -- Your name, years and country of service

      -- Your current hometown

      -- Where the photo was taken

      -- A paragraph that tells the story of the photo

      How will your photos be used?

      Photos representing a cross-section of Peace Corps history, countries,
      programs and Volunteers will decorate the Peace Corps San Francisco
      Regional Office and travel as part of Peace Corps photography exhibit
      throughout our region, beginning in Davis, CA on Feb. 23. All photos
      will be displayed with your name and the information you provide.

      Other photos will be incorporated into our local recruiters'
      slideshows and presentations as they traverse the region in search of
      the next great PCVs.

      Submissions don't need to be "calendar quality." We're more
      interested in the story the photos tell.

      Sorry, at this time, we are only able to accept digital photos (but
      that includes high-quality scans of your great prints from the
      '60s-'90s!).

      Please email your submission by Feb. 16 to be considered for inclusion
      in the first exhibit in Davis, CA on Feb. 23. A submission will serve
      as consent to the release authorization form below*.

      Thank you! For other ideas for celebrating Peace Corps Week, please
