Poll for March 2023 : Friends and Family
« on: Apr 03, 2023, 02:30 PM »
The theme for the March Competition, "Friends and Family", was chosen by Thomas Hypher.

Please vote for your three favourite photos. This is the sixth competition of the new calendar year, with winning and runner-up photos going towards the 2024 QE2 Story Calendar.

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

Voting is easy, but you need to be registered as a Forum member and log into the Forum to vote.  Whether or not you have submitted photos, please support those who have participated, by choosing your 3 favourite ones, noting the details, then tick the relevant boxes on the poll.  If you have entered photos, please do not vote for your own pictures.

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

However, you might like to turn to the Gallery Album, "Friends and Family" where you can see them all at once, in thumbnail form. Plus you can view larger versions of the pictures by clicking on the photos to see them in medium size, and clicking once more for large size.

https://www.theqe2story.com/forum/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=291

You will not see the results of the vote until the poll has closed on 1 May 2023, after all time zones have had a chance to catch up with the voting deadline.

Enjoy the variety of the photos, seeing family and friends together, and choose your three favourites.

Easter weekend when many people have time off work to relax and maybe vote in the photo competition. 

One photo is already taking the lead, make sure your favourite pictures get your vote!
