Title: Photo of the Month - March 2017
Post by: Barry Drive on February 18, 2017, 01:23:35 PM
The month is getting away from me. So about time to open up Photo of the Month.

The rules:

The winning photo will be loaded to the actbus.net website and posted to ACT Bus on Facebook. The winner and runner(s)-up will also be included in the Photo of the Year vote. By submitting a photo, you are giving permission for it to be loaded onto the ACT Bus Gallery and Facebook page.


If possible, please supply date or month of photo.

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

Photos can be submitted four ways: (1) by posting to this forum topic (2) by posting on ACT Bus facebook page (and mentioning POTM) (3) by tweeting to @actbus or @actbusspotter (4) by contacting ACT Bus (submit a "contact us" form, send a message to our Facebook page or send me a Private Message) - and we'll send you an email address.

Unhosted photos may be uploaded into the ACT Bus Gallery which will apply a watermark. Requests to remove the watermark will not be considered.

*This month we are seeking photos of buses 894 to 940 inclusive . By submitting a photo which matches this criterion, you may post up to three photos - but all three must not be of the same bus.

To ensure consistency, photos must be displayed with a width of 640 (or height if 640 if a "portrait" aspect) - photos wider than 640 are required to use the option width=640 or height=640 in the image tag. For example: [img width=640] instead of [img].

Submissions close midnight 25 February, Australian Eastern Daylight savings time, unless there are insufficient photos for a vote to take place, in which case nominations will be extended.

Seeing as the bonus category is Buses 894 to 940, I present 894 with 940 at City Bus Station.

Another close vote - with Bus 511 narrowly winning. Well done to all.

The bonus category next month may be the remaining Renault PR100.3s. But I may have to find a way to discourage photos of AOA artics and Bus 622. (Bear in mind 623 & 624 might be in service in about two weeks from now.)
