March 2023 : Friends and Family
« on: Mar 06, 2023, 05:42 PM »
The theme for this month's photo competition is "Friends and Family", chosen by Thomas Hypher.

Photos should be taken during QE2's service life, from within the ship, on deck or from shoreside. Photos must show at least a sliver of QE2. What constitutes friends and / or family is left up to your interpretation. Humans? Animals? Other ships or boats? It could become quite an eclectic collection.

There are quite a few suitable photos already in the QE2 Story Gallery -- if you would like to use one of those for the competition, just let the Moderators know, and we can enter them for you, without removing them from their original albums.

Your description should if possible give some information about the location of the ship when the photo was taken, and the year.

Photos entered should be your own, or if not, please post them with permission of the photographer, mentioning the name for copyright reasons, and so that the owner can win the prize!

Enjoy the search! It is bound to bring many happy memories :) .



The prize this month is "Three Queens an International Rendezvous - a film by Robert Neal Marshall.  Signed by Robert Neal Marshall", donated by Lynda Bradford.





How to enter

The album is open -- so now is the time to look for your three most interesting pictures on this theme. Wishing you happy memories as you search your photo collection to find up to three pictures to upload to the competition album.

This link will take you straight there : Friends and Family.

If you have not uploaded photos to the Forum Gallery before, have a look at these instructions, and if you have any problems or would like us to move a photo from the Gallery into the competition, just contact us on admin@theqe2story.com.

If it helps, you could email the photos to the above address, and we shall gladly upload them for you.

The deadline for submitting photos is 31 March 2023. Voting will run from 1 April 2023 until 1 May 2023, until everyone's time zone has caught up with the closing date.

We look forward to seeing your photos in this competition. 

This is the fifth month of photos for the 2024 calendar. Maybe your photo will figure there!

Enjoy yourselves!  :)

Early entries for this month's competition but we need lots more. 

It could be photos with members of your family or friends who were on the cruise with you, friends you met on QE2 or your interpretation that meets the theme. 

Looking forward to seeing your pictures. 

Isabelle has given instructions (see above post) to help you enter your photos.  But if you need help contact admin@theqe2story.com

Looking for photos to be uploaded to this month's competition and thinking that there would have been a lot of friends within the ship's crew.  Calling all QE2 crew to look for photos to upload.

Just in case you are struggling to find photos to fit this month's theme here is a recap of Isabelle's description:

Only 24 photos uploaded to this month's  photo competition, so far, but looking at the pictures they tell a story of friends and family on QE2.

You have until 31 March to enter your three favourite photos.
