The theme for the June competition "QE2 Stairways" was chosen by Isabelle Prondzynski the runner up of the March competition. Lots of interesting pictures, which will make your choice even more difficult. 

Thank you to everyone who submitted pictures, which we really appreciate, and we hope that you enjoy choosing your 3 favourites.

Voting is easy but you need to be a Forum member and log into the Forum to vote.  Even if you have not submitted photos, please support those who have participated, by choosing your three favourite ones, noting the details, then tick the relevant box on the poll.  But if you have submitted photos please do not vote for the photos you have entered. 

To make it easier for you we have posted the pictures below, however you can also view the photos in the Gallery, where you can see them all at once, in thumbnail form, plus you can view larger versions of the pictures by clicking on the photo to see medium size, then click again, to see them in large size.

Go to the Gallery Album QE2 Stairways .

The prize this month is the book "Pride of the North Atlantic" by David F Hutchings, donated by Isabelle Prondzynski

Alternatively, June Ingram is offering a jigsaw of the prizewinning picture

You will not see the results until after the voting has closed on 1 August 2017, giving all time zones the chance to catch up with the voting deadline. 

As always the choice is yours enjoy!

QE2 Stairways certainly generated excellent entries for the June competition. 

We have "upstairs downstairs" "... looking up" or "looking down" and even a "stairway to heaven" to name a few of this month's photos.  But as always the choice is yours - enjoy!

I knew it would be difficult to make a choice, but my votes have been cast.  I really like this theme as it brings back so many memories of QE2's stairways.

Surprised that there are no photos of the iconic D stairway at the Columbia with the Blue carpets and white stairguides...Now that always reeked of luxury.

That is beautifully expressed, Brandon! You are entirely right -- and we have a great collection of much variety here.

14 voters now (thank you, Trevor!) and four photos in equal lead.

One week to go, and much will change as more votes (hopefully!) come in.

15 voters have now cast their ballots.  Actually, I just voted.  It has taken me all month to make a selection, and I do wish I could cast a vote for every single photo.  My, our beloved QE2 has magnificent stairs !!   :)

There are a few days left, and if you have not cast your ballot, please do so.   :)

16 voters now. One picture leading, with two others in hot pursuit.

I think we have never had as few votes... :( ... but then, there are still a few days left this month, including a whole week-end to contemplate these views and the memories they bring!

Myles, I do not understand why more members do not take time to vote, but as long as those who do vote enjoy seeing the photos that is what is important.  There is a mix of members and non members who have booked for the conference, we may look at the percentage later.

That is Princess Diana in one of the pictures right?

Actually Trevor her CORRECT title was Diana, Princess of Wales.
She was only a Princess by marriage, and not by birth as is Princess Ann, being the only daughter of HM The Queen.

18 have voted and there is still a bit of time.  Spend some quality time before the poll closes to view magnificent photos of our beloved QE2 and then to cast your ballot.
