The theme for this month's photo competition is "QE2's artefacts (artwork, models, memorabilia and displays)", chosen by Cunarder Man.

Photos should be taken during QE2's service life. Each photo should include one or more such artworks or artefacts, either from close-up or within a slightly wider context. The items may be firmly attached, or movable within the ship.

Lots of possibilities come to mind -- we all have different ideas as to what constitutes an artwork or artefact!

Enjoy the search!



The prize this month is the book "The Saga Sisters" by Clive Harvey and Roger Cartwright, donated by Isabelle Prondzynski.





How to enter

We realise from the recent survey that many members have never yet entered photos for the competition, but have plenty of suitable images that could be enjoyed by us all. We want to make it as easy for you as possible, so we suggest that you could just email the pictures to admin@theqe2story.com and we can upload them to the Gallery for you.

You could also have a look at these instructions, and have a go at uploading the pictures yourselves in the photo competition album. Once you have done it once, you will find it easy the next time!

The deadline for submitting photos will be 31 May 2022. Voting will run from 1 June 2022 until 1 July 2022, until everyone's time zone has caught up with the date.

We look forward to seeing your photos in this competition. 

Maybe your picture will figure in next year's calendar!

Enjoy yourselves! And please do not hesitate to ask for help in uploading the pictures  :)

Thanks Isabelle, for posting the information for this month's Photo Competition.  Lots of options to think about while we look for suitable photos. 

The Saga Sisters book is a good prize for the winner, I love the photo on the cover of the ship in the background and the penguins on the shore, who just happen to be the same colour as the ship.   :)

I have uploaded my three pictures to the competition, but they are looking a bit lonely waiting for you to upload your three photos for this month's theme. 

Isabelle added this information to help you choose your pictures:

I have now added mine. Two of these concern design details, which in the case of QE2 can also be seen as artwork -- or so I think!

Good photos of design elements! :)

In the case of QE2, design details definitely qualify as art work !

Twelve excellent  photos uploaded so far, perhaps we could have another twelve before the end of the week!

Do you have photos that fit the theme you would like to add but are not sure how to upload to the gallery album?

Nice to see the mix of artefacts being entered. We are getting a great view into the artwork, models, memorabilia and displays on board -- we could almost arrange a heritage trail with the items in this collection.

More are welcome -- let us make it a real tour of QE2. Did anyone take a photo of the pictures in the cabins? Would they count as artworks?  ;)
