Poll August 2021 : QE2's Smoking Funnel
« on: Aug 30, 2021, 02:58 PM »
The theme for the August Competition, "QE2's Smoking Funnel" was chosen by Lynda Bradford, winner of the April 2021 competition.

Thank you to everyone who submitted pictures, which we really appreciate. We hope that you enjoy choosing and voting for your 3 favourites.  This is the eleventh competition of the new "calendar" year, with winning and runner-up photos going towards the 2022 QE2 Story Calendar.

There is a choice of prizes of either the DVD "QE2, The Last of the Great Queens" donated by Isabelle Prondzynski or a 500 or 1000 piece jigsaw of the prizewinning photo.

Forum members should note that photos entered must either be their own, or if not, the name of the photographer must be identified for copyright reasons, and so that the owner can potentially win the prize and be credited in the Calendar!


Voting is easy, but you need to be registered as a Forum member and log into the Forum to vote.  Whether or not you have submitted photos, please support those who have participated, by choosing your 3 favourite ones, noting the details, then tick the relevant boxes on the poll.  If you have entered photos, please do not vote for your own pictures.


To make it easier for you, we have posted the pictures below. However, you can also view the photos by clicking the Gallery Album, "QE2's Smoking Funnel", where you can see them all at once, in thumbnail form, plus you can view larger versions of the pictures by clicking on the photos to see medium size, and clicking once more to see them in large size.

You will not see the results of the vote until the poll has closed on 1 October 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 :) .

Good start to the voting, but if everyone who logs into the forum this month take a few minutes to view the photos and choose their three favourites it could make a difference to which photo wins.

14 voters - two photos tied for first place - two photos tied for second place (but then, there is no such thing as a second place QE2 photo).

Do I hear 15...!  :)
