May 2024 : QE2 in the Caribbean
« on: May 02, 2024, 09:33 PM »
The theme for this month's photo competition is "QE2 in the Caribbean", chosen by Katharina Ernst.

Photos can have been taken onboard or onshore, in any country in or bordering on the Caribbean (from Florida to Venezuela with all the island states), including the Panama Canal. I very much hope that those among us who have been lucky enough to have sailed on QE2 in the Caribbean will make a maximum effort to share their photos in this competition.

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 give some information about when or where the photo was taken.

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 be credited if the photo is published in the calendar!

Enjoy the search! Those of us who never had the pleasure, will be looking forward to your memories.







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 : QE2 in the Caribbean.

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 3 June 2024. Voting will run from 4 June 2024 until 1 July 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 fifth month of photos for the 2025 calendar. Maybe your photo will figure there :) .

Enjoy yourselves!

QE2 in the Caribbean - perfect topic to remind us of QE2's cruising days.

Thank-you for everyone who has uploaded photos to the competition album.

Check out the details of what photos will meet the theme.  As you can see the photos can be of QE2 in countries bordering the Caribbean, including Florida and the Panama Canal. However you need to see at least a little bit of QE2.
