January 2020 : Ropes, cables and chains
« on: Jan 02, 2020, 10:01 PM »
This month's theme is "Ropes, cables and chains", chosen by shipnshore, the winner of the September 2019 competition.

The pictures should contain at least a sliver (or more) of QE2 as well as some ropes, cables or chains.



The prize this month
is a copy of the publication "QE2 the Final Voyage -- Britain waves goodbye", donated by Pia. See photo below.

Alternatively, June Ingram is offering a jigsaw of the prizewinning picture. The choice is yours -- which will it be?



How to enter

The album is open -- so now is the time to look for your three most interesting pictures on this theme during QE2's service years. 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 : Ropes, cables and chains.

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 January 2020. Voting will run from 1 February 2020 until 29 February 2020.

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

This is the fifth month of photos for the 2021 calendar. Maybe your photo will figure there!

Enjoy yourselves!  :)

Just contributed. Excellent topic choice as photos that might not otherwise have been contributed to the photo competitions are seeing the light of day now.
First travelled on QE2 in August 2003 aged 6 years old. Last stepped foot and travelled on QE2 in July 2008. Last saw QE2 in person from the decks of QM2, on QE2's last Transatlantic crossing (Eastbound tandem) in October 2008 - we had the better view!

10 pictures entered so far. This is an easy theme, and we look forward to many more entries. Ropes and cables were everywhere and can be found on many pictures not even focusing on them. Happy scouting!

Thanks for the reminder, I have added my three photos
I was proud to be involved with planning QE2's 50 year conference in September 2017 in Clydebank
