This being the inaugural invitation calling for artists to participate, resulting in one of the larger mail art exhibitions of the 1980s. The festival ended up getting a large number of participants from artists around the world, including Guy Bleus, Paulo Bruscky, Ulises Carrión, Robert Filliou, György Galántai, Michael Gibbs, J. H. Kocman, Miroljub Todorovic, Endre Tot, Clemente Padín, Bern Porter, and Ben Vautier among several others.
