Photo of the Month - December 2015

Last one for this year - submissions now open for Photo of the Month, December 2015.

The winning photo will be loaded to the actbus.net front page for a month (and added to the POTM archive) and posted to ACT Bus on Facebook. The winner and runner-up(s) 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.

The rules:
  • photo must be "owned" by the person submitting it (if not, you must have the permission of the photographer to submit the photo - and identify the photographer)
  • two* photographs may be submitted by any one person, provided they have not been submitted before
  • submitted photographs must prominently 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 in focus
      • the fleet or registration number of the bus is identifiable (or supplied by photographer if not visible in photograph)
  • photos narrower than 640 pixels will not be accepted

If possible, please supply date or month of photo.

Refer here 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 (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.

* This month we are seeking photos of: Former AOA buses#. If you submit such a photo, you may still submit 2 other new photos (3 photos in total).

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 24 November, Australian Eastern Standard Time, unless extended.

Voting will commence on 25 November. Voting will close on 1 December.


# In other words - a bus which used to have an AOA but now doesn't. Examples: 109, 394, 463, 896 & 982.

A former AOA bus in its former AOA or just any bus which has formerly had an AOA? And do liveries count?

OK, there is some ambiguity. So to take the widest interpretation: ANY photo of ANY bus which once had an AOA but no longer does.

Repeat: ANY photo.

So it can have an AOA in the photo, or not. So long as it now doesn't.

That's three in a row for King Of Buses. Don't know if that's happened before.

In a slight change from previous years, Photo of the Year will now consist of 3 preliminary rounds - round 1 will commence shortly.

And there will be another change coming for Photo of the Month next year.
