Title: Photo of the Month - December 2014
Post by: Barry Drive on November 19, 2014, 11:01:32 AM
A bit later than usual, but it's now time to submit nominations for Photo of the Month for December 2014. In addition to being shown on the actbus.net front page for a month (and added to the POTM archive), the winning photo will also be loaded to ACT Bus on Facebook and will be used as the "cover" photo for the ACT Bus Facebook page (for at least 1 week). The winner and runner-up(s) will also be included in the Photo of the Year vote.

Photos can be submitted three ways: (1) by posting to this forum topic (2) by posting on ACT Bus facebook page (3) by emailing ACT Bus (submit a "contact us (http://actbus.net/contact-act-bus/)" form and we'll send you an email address).

The rules:

The photographs must feature:

If possible, nominator should supply date or month of photo.

Refer here (http://actbus.net/gallery-submissions/) for full ACT Bus photo submission conditions.

Photos posted here need to be displayed with a width of 640 (or height if 640 if a "portrait" aspect). Photos narrower than 640 pixels will not be accepted; photos wider than 640 are required to use the option width=640 in the image tag - as follows "[img width=640]".

Submissions close midnight 26 November, Australian Eastern Standard Time. Voting will then run for 4 days only.
