Picture of the Year - 2006

In recognition of our first year of the Picture of the Month competition, The Royal Forum team brings you the first annual Picture of the Year competition for 2006.

These pictures were selected by you as the best of each month in 2006 and reflect your favorite Pictures from the months of January through December 2006.



Many many thanks to the Picture of the Month committees who chose the nominations for each of the Picture of the Month selections.



This poll will be open for three (3) weeks and will close March 1.

Now it's time to pick your absolute favorite Picture of 2006. Will it be....?

Though it's certainly the hardest poll ever, I had suprisingly easy choice. I mean once I refreshed my memory of all these pictures, I knew exactly which one is the most special for me.

Great pics. Some royal families appear several times in these pictures. Is it first time when we can choose pic of the year? I don't remember pic of the year fot the year 2005.
I've chosen a pic that I think is the most "royal".

Hi Lakshmi,

This poll started at the beginning of 2006, so you're right - there wasn't a 2005 poll.

Hey nokklav. There was no january Poll yet, because of the Re-organization of the Picture-of-the Month Poll.
The january/february Poll will be posted soon.

You can find all information about the new format here:
