September 2021 : My most treasured QE2 photos
« on: Sep 05, 2021, 09:02 PM »
The theme for this month's photo competition is "My most treasured QE2 photos", chosen by the Moderating Team to celebrate ten years of the QE2 Story photo competitions!

These will be very special photos, full of memories and with a special place in our lives -- we look forward to reading the stories behind some of these pictures.

Photos should be taken during 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 time of year.

Enjoy the search!



The prize this month is the very special photo book containing the prizewinning photos of the past ten years, created and donated by Lynda Bradford. Have a preview of this fabulous book here :

https://www.theqe2story.com/forum/index.php?topic=9767.0



Should the prize be won by someone who already owns a copy of the book, an alternative prize will be given.




How to enter

The album is open -- so now is the time to look for your three most cherished 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 : My most treasured QE2 photos.

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 September 2021. Voting will run from 1 October 2021 until 1 November 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 last month of photos for the 2022 calendar. Maybe your photo will figure there!

Enjoy yourselves!  :)

I wonder who will be the first to enter their "most treasured QE2 photos" in the album.  I need to take some time to give this theme some thought, so many pictures but which ones are my most treasured.

Remember you can add photos that you had added to a previous competition.

I have uploaded my three treasured photos, from different decades, one from 1967, when I was first introduced to QE2, one from 1997, the first time I sailed on the ship, and one from the 2000's, a memorable view of the ship from a tender.  So many photos with memories that it is difficult to choose.

September is the month of QE2's launch, which makes it even more important that we encourage as many people as possible to enter their treasured photos.  Even one or two pictures. 

There is a post from Isabelle on this topic about scanning treasured photos in photo albums, without disturbing the pictures.

Slow start to competition entries, which can only mean one thing - everyone has so many treasured QE2 photos that they are finding it difficult to choose only three.   :)

Looking forward to seeing lots of people supporting this month's competition.

Mine were easy to select -- I knew right from the start which they would be, although I could have added a fourth...

Memories of the ship and my family combined. It was the combination that gave the greatest joy!

A wonderful collection is building up. It will be a real joy to look at these again and again, even after the competition is long decided...

32 photos entered for this month's competition so far and we are only half way through the month.  As next week we celebrate 54 years since the launch of QE2 at Clydebank, we need your help to get at least 54 photos entered by the end of the month. 

A big ask, I know but there are so many treasured photos in albums that deserve to take a bow!

....and remember the winner will be offered the special prize -  the photo book of ten years of photo competition winners
