October 2007 Official Picture of the Month Poll

Welcome to the October Official Picture of the Month 2007!

The monthly official polls will highlight the official side of royalty as opposed to the informal side of royalty.

The monthly polls will consist of pictures that show a royal on official business.
  • gala events such as the Nobel prize ceremonies, state visits, royal ceremonies such as the the Order of the Garter ceremony in Great Britain or the New Years gala for the Knights of the Order of the Elephant in Denmark, Opening of Parliament, coronations, enthronements.
  • openings of public events, government buildings, hospitals, christening of ships, official charity work
  • family celebrations (such as wedding, christening, or special days such as Victoria Day in Sweden or Queen's Day in the Netherlands, King Harald's 70th birthday) and the balcony shots that accompany them
  • among many other official events
We hope by the end of the year to have some really stunning and regal Picture of the Month winners to compete in our 2007 Picture of the Year awards.

For more information on the 2007 Picture of the Month schedule and all we have planned for 2007, take a look at this thread.

This month, our Picture of the Month representatives had help in selecting their images with a small committee of their choosing. Below, you can see each royal house's representative (in bold) followed by their chosen committee members.


Belgium: - Marengo, stephanievl, Johann

Britain: Avalon - milla Ca, casiraghitrio, TheTruth

Brunei/Malaysia: Humera - Warren

Denmark: Dazzling, Jessrulz, GlitteringTiaras

Japan: Dragonsfire8, Vanesa

Jordan: Humera - Little_star - Salma

Luxembourg: suturegeisha - drimal

Monaco: Iceflower - Ianna, tbhrc

Morocco: Humera – Warren

Norway: Her_Majesty - KikkiB, carlota

Spain: LaChicaMadrilena - Anna_R, crisiñaki

Sweden: ZandraRae, Gita, Furienna

The Netherlands: The Watcher, Marengo, Lucien

The pictures of this poll reflect the official royal events of September. The poll will be open for three weeks. It will close on November 24. During these three weeks, we ask that no one state whom they've voted for so as not to influence other members as they make their choices. For the final week of the month, you can discuss as much as you'd like about which image you voted for and why.

Please note that the links in the above poll have been posted in the order in which they were received and do not reflect the opinions of the moderating team.

Tearful Reunion - Queen Rania applauds as she watches Muhammad Shamas embrace his mother Wafa Shehada.

Deeply moved by the story, the Palestinian-born Queen arranged for Wafa to travel from Gaza to Jordan. In a surprise move to the producers, the audience and especially to Muhammad, Rania personally accompanied Wafa to a live broadcast of the show for a tearful reunion with her son.

My sincerest apologies. Apparently when I refreshed the poll the spanish picture did not refresh with it. I am going to go in and put that one in right now.

I have added the Spanish picture, and that has reset the entire poll, so everyone will need to vote again.

Spanish team: My sincerest apologies.

EDIT: If your photo vote is missing, and you are unable to vote, please PM me with your choice and we will see if we can enter your vote in.

Hi Seraphine,

I think that the hosting site for those photos is down. I will see if we can rehost them somewhere else, but for the moment, I can not even open them, so I need to PM the rep and see what is what.

Thanks

Empress

{edited to remove reference to vote}
But now the vote is gone and I cannot vote again because the poll is refreshed and it says I cannot vote because I did already. Can you add my vote?
Maybe the whole poll should be posted again?
Or am I the only one who cannot vote ?

Okay, I think that we have it fixed. If anyone voted for a photo and would like to change their vote to Spain, please PM me and let me know. This is only for people that voted before the Spanish photo was added in.

Everyone else's votes should now show.

THANK YOU everyone, who voted for the British picture!
And of course, CONGRATULATIONS to the Dutch Committee, it was a great picture.

I liked the Danish, Norwegian, British pictures, and of course, the cutest Dutch picture very much.
But my personal favourite was the Jordanian picture. It was very special and very moving, one of the most special pictures I've ever seen in this poll.
