Photo of the Month - April 2014

Nominations are now open for Photo of the Month for April 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, if suitable, will be used as the cover photo for the ACT Bus Facebook page (subject to cropping). The winner and runner-up(s) will also be included in the Photo of the Year vote.

To kick things off, a photo from the past will be selected as a starter photo. This photo will be included in the vote, but in the event of insufficient photos being submitted it will be used as the Photo of the Month on facebook and the website.

The rules:
  • photo must be user's own work or submitted with permission of the photographer
  • a user may submit up to two photographs, provided they have not been submitted before
  • in addition, a user may submit a photo which was previously submitted (by the same user) more than 12 months ago, provided that photo did not win Photo of the Month or Photo of the Year

The photographs must feature:
  • bus infrastructure (such as bus stop, bus station, bus depot) within the ACT / Queanbeyan region (location must be specified)
and/or
  • a bus from the ACT or Queanbeyan (taken within the region or a former ACT/Queanbeyan bus) where -
    • the bus is the main subject of the photograph (or features prominently)
    • the bus is in focus
    • the fleet or registration number of the bus is identifiable (or supplied by photographer if not visible in photograph)

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

Refer here for full ACT Bus photo submission conditions.

To ensure consistency, photos must 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 23 March, Australian Eastern Daylight Savings Time.

A minimum of 4 photos must be submitted for voting to commence. Nominations may be extended if four have not been submitted, but at the end of the extended period if there are still fewer than 4 photos no vote will take place, all nominations will roll over to May 2014 and the starter photo will be used as the Facebook and Website photo of the month.

This month's starter photo comes from L J Pascoe.

Let's start off with an old photo using the cuteness factor. Taken on Roden Cutler Dr, Jacka, not long after Network 12 started (from memory).


We've then have Bus 361 on Giles Street (Kingston), outside the Kingston Hotel.

Nit-picking moderator's note: Kingston Hotel is located within the suburb of Griffith.
