This month's theme is "Hot", chosen by me, Isabelle Prondzynski, as the winner of the December competition.

This theme was originally proposed by Rob Lightbody, and is open to any kind of interpretation -- up to you to find suitable pictures to reflect the theme. I wonder what they will be!

The prize this month is "The Evolution of the Transatlatic Liner", by Chris Frame and Rachelle Cross, donated by Chris Frame.

This book is currently offered for sale by Amazon at GBP 16.58 :

The album is open -  so now is the time to look for your most interesting pictures on this theme. Wishing you fun 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 : Hot.

If you have not uploaded photos to the Forum Gallery before, have a look at these instructions, and if you have any problems, just contact us on admin@theqe2story.com. You could even email the photos to this address, and we can upload them for you.

The deadline for submitting photos is 31 March 2015. Voting will run from 1 April 2015 until 30 April 2015.

We look forward to seeing your photos in this month's competition. 

Enjoy yourselves!  :)

The March competition theme has not attracted a lot of photos so far.  Remember the theme is open to interpretation.  It could be hot on deck or hot flambe or .........  :-\

Actually this theme hopefully will attract a lot of entry photos.  Yes, Lynda, definitely, open to interpretation.   ;D  Let's see if we can break the record for photo entries ?  Any crossing the line photos (equator) with King Neptune ?  I do believe it could be hot in the engine room too !

This theme is fun! I have just uploaded four pictures -- three of these will end up in the competition.

I love one of those uploaded before mine... made me grin!

By the way, it is now very easy to upload -- just click the Gallery button at the top of any Forum page and choose "Upload", and you end up straight away on the right page. All you have to do is to choose which photo competition you are entering (i.e. not one of the closed ones!) :) .

Only 7 photos entered so far -- it would be great to have some more.

As it is, there is one that stands out, and I would bet a largish sum (if I ever betted!) that it would win.

HOT!!

Have a look :

I think I can see which one you mean, but I'd better not say openly for fear of introducing prejudice to the voting process

Then again, I suspect it'll do well enough without anyone being influenced by anything.  :)

I'll upload them to the competition album for you, Pete, within the next couple of days. Thank you for those lovely hot views!

The photo competition for the theme "Hot" is now closed and I am currently setting up the poll for voting.  But I would like to thank everyone who contributed photos, and used their imagination as to what was "Hot" about QE2.
