October 2008 Official Picture of the Month Poll
Welcome to the
October 2008 Official Picture of the Month Poll!
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.
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 Empress, Dazzling or LadyK.
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.

The pictures of this poll reflect the official royal events of January. The poll will be open for three weeks. It will close on 2 December 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! :flowers:
