September 2023 : Luggage
« on: Sep 04, 2023, 09:43 PM »
The theme for this month's photo competition is "Luggage", chosen by Cunardqueen, who may well have held a record for the amount of luggage brought on board  ;D.

Photos can be of luggage anywhere on or off QE2, from the moment of embarkation to the moment of disembarkation and departure. QE2 should preferably be in the picture, but luggage in port waiting to be loaded or already unloaded is eligible.

Update: we have decided to widen the theme to try to encourage more entries.  Luggage could include the clothes in the wardrobes , which are also luggage, and perhaps even the clothes that were worn. Anything you brought on board with you! Could be a photo of something like a camera.

Some pictures may already be 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 where you were on the day, as you took the photo.

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 / sad memories and possibly a grin to your face :) .



The prize this month (donated by me) is the yet to be designed QE2 Story desk calendar for 2024. This calendar is only available as a prize, it cannot be ordered for sale.



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 : Luggage.

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 30 September 2023. Voting will run from 1 October 2023 until 1 November 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 final month of photos for the 2024 calendar. Maybe your photo will figure there!

Enjoy yourselves!  :)

How much luggage did you take on your QE2 voyage? Let's hope you have lots of photos so that you can upload 3 to this month's competition.

Not many entries for this month's competition so far, which is disappointing as luggage was so much part of a cruise.

We have had a little "confab" and decided to widen the theme to include the clothes in the wardrobes , which are also luggage, and perhaps even the clothes that were worn.

Anything you brought on board with you! Could be a photo of something like a camera.

This month's theme needs a bit of imagination!  Looking forward to seeing your interpretation!

Please enter your favorite three luggage photos ! Does your luggage display QE2 tags ? How about your luggage sitting outside your door on the final night ?

Have a look at the album. Pia's photos are frankly a bit cheeky, but they still fit the theme. Would you have something similar to add to this collection?
