Voting has started on 1 December



The December Competition is a very special one. Here, we have assembled all 29 prizewinning photographs that went into the 2021 calendars of The QE2 Story. Your vote will now decide which of these 29 marvellous photos is the top prizewinner.

We also have a very special, and very appropriate prize on offer. The prize has been donated by an anonymous member who is donating a prize for the first time. We are very grateful. The prize is a free choice among the four models of the QE2Story calendar for 2021.

And because this is a special month with the top prizewinning photos, and we have a special prize on offer, everyone will have 5 votes instead of the normal three.

Voting is easy, but you need to be registered as a Forum member and log into the Forum to vote. If your own photos figure in this collection, please do not vote for them, but support the other photographers instead.

To make it easier for you, we have posted the pictures below. You will find all of them also in the topic Photo competition results : 2021 Calendar.

You will not see the results of the vote until the poll has closed on 1 January 2021, after all time zones have had a chance to catch up with the voting deadline.

Enjoy the variety in these photos and choose your favourites :) .

As always the choice is yours -- enjoy!

Just two days until the voting opens for the overall winner of this year's Calendar photos.  I had a look at the choices thinking I could decide on which five will get my votes on Tuesday, but so many were my choices in the monthly competition that having to choose just five will be difficult.

What an amazing collection.

I voted, but had to leave favourite photos unvoted for - very difficult!

Well done everyone.  ;D

June, I feel the same, I would have liked to have voted for more than five and I had to change my selection several times. 

11 people have voted but I am sure that many more are still selecting their five favourites, so take time to enjoy the photos and vote now.   :)

There are currently three photos tied for first place and four photos tied for the runner up place.

How can anyone make a choice from a selection of photos that already are the best ? :)

We have 18 voters now, and three photos vying for top place. This Best of the Year competition deserves a high turnout -- and if you have never before voted in a photo competition here, this is the month to give it a try!

Hard choices have to be made -- which is the best of the best? You decide :) .
