The theme for this month's photo competition is "Dockside crowds or musical greetings for QE2", chosen by Sea Pigeon.

Photos can have been taken onboard or from dockside, in port or at anchorages, and even when QE2 slowed down to pass through locks. The pictures should contain at least a sliver of QE2, plus of course the crowds or musicians onshore.

Some pictures may already be in the QE2 Story Gallery -- if you would like to use any 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 memories and possibly a grin to your face :) .



The prize this month (donated by me) is the new Vistaprint QE2 Story desk calendar for 2024. This calendar is only available as a prize, it cannot be ordered for sale. If the prizewinner has an address outside Europe (including the UK), it can be replaced by the Lulu calendar, as Vistaprint will only ship within Europe.



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 : Dockside crowds or musical greetings for QE2.

If you have not uploaded photos to the Forum Gallery for a while, 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 December 2023. Voting will run from 1 January 2024 until 1 February 2024, 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 first month of photos for the 2025 calendar. Already! Maybe your photo will figure there :) .

Enjoy yourselves!

Thank you for the reminder, Lynda! I have finally found my entries to this topic, and am enjoying the other photos already there.

Not enough though -- please add some more! Again, this competition is bringing photos into the Forum that were not previously here -- they all add to QE2's wonderful story.

And please don't forget to vote for the Best of the Best -- give the photographers your Thumbs-Up!
