Picture of the Month: March 2006

Welcome to March's Picture of the Month poll!

To emphasize that the Picture of the Month polls are different from other polls around the forum, and that the emphasis should be on the pictures rather than the royal houses for which they represent, instead of the country name, the pictures are embedded into the poll choices this month. To see the image in its full size, click on the thumbnail to enlarge.

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: Mette2 - Dennism, pdas1201 and Danielle

Spain: mtbcm - LaChicaMadrilena, Elsa M., Anna_R

Jordan: Humera - Little_star

Morocco: Humera - Amira

Brunei: Humera - Warren

Monaco: tbhrc - Ianna, Michelle, Iceflower

Japan: mandyy - kei893265, merampo

Norway: purple_platinum - Larzen, LaMinka

Sweden: purple_platinum - Lena

Luxembourg: suturegeisha - drimal

The Netherlands: The Watcher - Marengo, Maxie

Britain: princejohnny25 - ysbel, HMQueenElizabethII, Avalon

Denmark: H.M. Margrethe - Mandy, norwegianne, pdas1201

In response to member feedback this month's poll will be open for three weeks rather than two. It will close on Saturday, April 22. 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 pictures in the above poll have been posted in a random order, first by their shape (portrait or landscape), and do not reflect any personal feelings of The Moderating Team.

Hi everybody,

Sorry for the earlier inconvenience of the previous poll not working. I have re-done the poll and this one should be working.

The poll still closes on April 22.

Happy voting!

Smile Princess cake - funny!

The cake CP Viktoria is baking in the picture is called "Princess cake" (Prinsess tårta) in Swedish. That´s funny, I think! :)

The voting is now over for our March Picture of the Month Poll.

Congratulations to the Norwegian team for picking such a precious picture!

Thanks to all the Picture of the Month Representatives and their Committee Members for their efforts in making this poll happen and to all those members who voted.
