Poll for August 2023 : Last Visit to Greenock
« on: Sep 02, 2023, 02:21 PM »
The theme for the August Competition, "Last Visit to Greenock", was chosen by Pete Hamill.

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

The prize this month is a choice of either the Cunard 175 Posters or the DVD "Seaward the Great Ships" 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.

Here you can get a new one -- easy to do!

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

However, you might like to turn to the Gallery Album, "Last Visit to Greenock" 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=296

You will not see the results of the vote until the poll closes on 1 October 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.

Another photo competition is ready for votes!

This is the last one towards the 2024 calendar -- although the winners will come up again in our annual "Best of the Best" competition next month.

Enjoy the views of a wonderful sad day, the weather making it all the more photogenic :) .

I just voted - even with so few entries it's hard to choose...

Despite not having a lot of entries for the August competition, the photos entered are excellent and made choosing just three very difficult.

With 12 voters now, there is no clear favourite, and all the photos have their admirers. Please add your voice / vote to them, and celebrate QE2's final visit to the Clyde, during her birthday month!

Still only 12 voters...

At the moment, we have one leader (4 votes) and seven potential runners-up with 3 votes each. Could we try and make the result a bit more decisive?

What a fabulous selection of photos that have been entered for the August competition.

If you haven't voted yet you still have one more day to choose your three favourites and vote.
