Title: 2013 Archive - Poll for December Photo of the Month Competition (closed)
Post by: Lynda Bradford on Dec 30, 2011, 06:05 PM
Photo of the month competition - instructions on how to vote for your favourite photo

The theme of the December competition was "QE2 and her Passengers" and I cannot believe that yet again members have contributed 25 excellent photos that surpass all expectations.  Thank-you.

The QE2 Story Forum Photo Competition has provided some fantastic photos for our 2012 Calendar and we are now looking forward to seeing more amazing photos for next year's edition.    

Forum members can vote for their favorite photo (s).  Each member has 3 votes (but please do not vote for your own photo).  The voting is open to all members regardless of whether or not you submitted a photo.  

To make it easier for you we have posted the photos below.

But you can also  view the photos submitted by members in the Gallery - where you will probably get a better view of the photos
Click on the Gallery button from the forum or click on this link  

https://www.theqe2story.com/forum/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=55


Choose up to three photos you want to vote for noting photo details (name of photo and name of who has posted it) then
tick the relevant boxes on the voting poll.

You will not see the results until the voting has closed on 31 January when the winner will be announced.


Thank-you for voting.

Thank-you to the 18 people who have voted so far.  If you have not voted yet please have a look at these excellent photos and cast your vote.  There is one photo clear winner at the moment with another 4 close behind in second place.

Thanks Louis, I have changed the setting.  Sometimes this happens but I do not know why.  You are now sworn to secrecy!  ;D

We only have a few more days left to vote for the December Photo of the Month and so far only 21 people have voted.  It only takes  a few minutes to look at the photos and vote.   :)
