The poll for the March/April photo competition is now open for you to choose your three favourite pictures from the 36 entered to "The Elegance of QE2" album a theme chosen by Caledonia.

This is the fifth competition of the new "calendar" year, with winning and runner-up photos going towards the 2023 QE2 Story Calendar.

The prize, donated by June Ingram, will give the winner the opportunity to choose an item from The QE2 Story shop

Voting is easy, but you need to be registered as a Forum member and log into the Forum to vote.  If you have forgot your password see details to receive a reminder.

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 might like to turn to the Gallery Album, "The elegance of QE2", 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 June 2022, after all time zones have had a chance to catch up with the voting deadline.

Enjoy the variety of these photos and choose your favourites.

The poll for the March/April photo competition is now open and ready for your votes!

We did not have a poll last month as we had extended the time for entries to "The elegance of QE2" for an extra month, but the competition is back bigger and better, so now is the time to enjoy viewing the photos and vote for your three favourites.

  • QE2, a home from home - beautiful from all angles!
Another tricky 3 choices!
First sailed on QE2 in August 2003 aged 6 years old. Last stepped foot and sailed on QE2 in July 2008. Last saw the seagoing QE2 in person from the decks of QM2, on QE2's last Transatlantic crossing (Eastbound tandem) in October 2008. Visited QE2, in her new life, in Dubai back in January 2020.

I agree  - what a difficult choice, I found it so difficult to choose only 3, as there are so many excellent photos.

I don't want to vote for just three pictures.

I want to vote for the whole lot of them....!!!

Voting is off to a good start - thank-you to everyone who has voted so far. 

Did you miss not having the photo competition poll last month?

In the Photo Competition Survey topic Isabelle has asked for your view on whether we should return to a monthly competition and poll or move to every two month?  Giving us your opinion on this will help us decide on how to proceed.

Voting seems to have stalled in the last week. 

Such fabulous photos that deserve your votes.  If you can take time to vote for your three favourites it would be appreciated.
