The theme for this month's photo competition is "QE2's last voyages including the last transatlantic voyage", chosen by Anubhav Mitra, the winner of the February 2021 competition.

Photos should be taken during the final year of QE2's service life, within the ship or from shoreside. Each photo should show at least a sliver of QE2, and the description should if possible give some information about the location and the year.

Enjoy the search!



The prize this month is the QE2 Cookbook by Gretel Beer, donated by me, with some autographs and good wishes inside, from June 2000.





The author and book are mentioned here :

Alternatively, depending on circumstances due to Covid-19 restrictions, June Ingram may be able to offer a jigsaw of the prizewinning photograph.



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.

Photos entered must be your own, or if not, please mention the name of the photographer for copyright reasons, and so that the owner can win the prize!

This link will take you straight there : QE2's last voyages including the last transatlantic voyage.

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 30 June 2021. Voting will run from 1 July 2021 until 1 August 2021, until everyone's time zone has caught up with the date.

We look forward to seeing your photos in this competition. 

This is the ninth month of photos for the 2022 calendar. Maybe your photo will figure there!

Enjoy yourselves!  :)

10 photos entered so far. There must be plenty more waiting for their chance -- all the final calls and final voyages of 2007 and 2008, although it must be hard to select the best three to enter!

Looking forward to seeing a large entry for this competition :) .
