Suppose it's time for this again: now taking nominations for Photo of the Month for November 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" form and we'll send you an email address)

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.

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 25 October, Australian Eastern Standard Time.

Voting is now open.

You may submit your votes anonymously through the forum (up to 5 photos may be selected) and/or through Facebook.

Should the two voting system return different winners, the overall winner will be determined by a points system (where the forum vote takes priority).

Forum voting closes in 23 hours. Due to the highly complicated voting system in place this month, the forum vote could decide the outcome. So if you haven't voted yet via the forum poll above, do so now.
