I voted this month, but I think we had months with better pictures.

I have to say that it was quite hard for us to find pictures for this poll this month because the Norwegian Royal Family had their summer vacations and very rare official acts..
I think most of the other POM Reps had similar problems because the other Royal Families had their summer break, too.

That is a very beautiful photo of Haakon and MM there I am just wondering why this is chosen for Spain, I've seen a lot more beautiful photos of this dinner than this one where you can see clearly see the King & Queen. In this one, I can only see half the face of King Juan Carlos & the body of Queen Sofia

Thanks,

There are committee's who choose the pictures. If you look at the first post in the poll it gives a list of who is on each committee. If you have an interest in joining a committee you can take a look at this announcement or PM Empress, Mandy & myself.

I'm really glad Dubai won this month. It's nice to see a non-European Royalty wining the poll.
Congratulations to the winner!

I thought the Norway picture was rather special, it was among the top favourites for me, if not the favourite.

Great Dubai won this month ! It was, no doubt, the best picture.

I can't understand why Spain got this far. The picture is watermarked and you can't see the most important persons in the family well. There were many good pictures of that Dinner, I don't quite understand why exactly this one was chosen

I certainly don't mean to offend anyone from the Spanish picture comitee - I'm just speaking my mind.

I voted for Dubai too, I couldn't resist

I was also wondering why that particular picture was chosen to represent Spain?
As MissSaga said, I don't mean to offend anyone. I'm sure there is a very good reason..

I voted for Dubai as well. I thought it was an irresistable picture, it shows a wonderfully playful side of Princess Haya that I've always suspected she possesses.
Didnt think Spain and Norway would tie for second place, I personally thought that the latter was the more interesting picture. That puts Jordan in third place for the second time.
This was an exciting poll to watch. I dont like polls where the winners are apparent right away.
Congratulations to all the committees

I'm so glad to see Dubai win! It can be really disheartening to see the same European countries (Denmark/Spain) win over and over. Especially when at times it seems poeple are voting for their favourite house and not the best photo.

It's really good that 2 non-European houses made it into the Top 3!
