Royal Photo Montages (October 2008 Informal Poll)

Welcome to the October 2008 Informal Picture of the Month Poll showcasing
Royal Photo Montages



In this month's poll we have some wonderful photo montages put together by our Picture of the Month Committees.

The monthly official polls will highlight the un-official/historical and rarely seen side of royalty as opposed to the formal side of royalty.




The informal polls will consist of pictures that show a royal or some aspect of royal life historical or present that is more candid than our formal polls.
We hope by the end of the year to have some really stunning and regal Picture of the Month winners to compete in our 2008 Picture of the Year awards.
For more information on the 2008 Picture of the Month schedule and all we have planned for 2008, take a look at this thread.

If you have any ideas or suggestions for future polls you can post them there or contact Dazzling, LadyK or Empress.


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, LadyLeana

Britain: TheTruth- jcbcode99, Menarue

Brunei: Humera- Warren

Greece: Rhapsodybrat- Odette

Jordan: Humera- Little_star, salma

Luxembourg: Jessrulz- grim_lady, kyansaunt20

Malaysia: Humera- Warren

Monaco: Iceflower- radker18

Morocco: Humera- Warren

Norway: Her_Majesty- Kikkib, Rhapsodybrat

Sweden: Iceflower- HRH Kerry



The poll will be open for three weeks. It will close on 30 November 2008. 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.

Enjoy and have fun!

Empress, LadyK & Dazzling

These are beautiful pictures. It was hard to choose. Some were so regal, and some were so creative. I always love looking at these monthly pictures. But these were the best yet!!!

Congratulations to Norway! Based on artistic merit alone that was my personal favourite.

Thank you to everybody who voted for Jordan.
