Poll April 2023 : Admiration
« on: May 01, 2023, 02:51 PM »
The theme for the April Competition, "Admiration", was chosen by Lynda Bradford.

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

The prize this month is the big book "Queen Elizabeth 2 A Voyage of Discovery", by Carol Thatcher. The prize is donated by Isabelle Prondzynski.

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, "Admiration" 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=292

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

Enjoy the great variety of the photos, and choose your three favourites.
