Actually, one idea that came to my mind reading your valuable comment would be to organize this operation as a contest : photographs to register and choose some of the goods and, at the end of the period (maybe 2-3 months), the board (or a determined jury) to select they favorite 12-13 pictures to be granted with a prize. We could as well print a calendar with those pictures as memory. What do you think about it ?
