« on: April 17, 2018, 09:56:37 AM »
No really, we're up to May already!

The rules are:

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.

  • two* photographs may be submitted by any one person, provided they have not been submitted before
  • photos 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)
  • photos must be have taken legally - ACT Bus does not encourage or condone trespassing
  • submitted photographs must prominently feature:
    • public transport infrastructure (such as bus stop, bus station, bus depot, Light Rail line, tram depot) within the ACT / Queanbeyan region (location must be specified)
    and/or
    • a bus or tram from the ACT or Queanbeyan (taken within the region or a former ACT/Queanbeyan bus) where -
      • the vehicle is in focus
      • the fleet or registration number 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.

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 with a new "Black Handle" bike rack#. If you submit a photo (or two) meeting this criterion, you may post up to three photos but you may only submit a maximum of 2 photos of any particular 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 26 April, Australian Eastern standard Time.

Voting will commence on 27 April. Voting will close on 1 May.

# The bike rack must be visible in the photo to qualify. For a full list of bikes with black handled DL2 bike racks, refer to this post. There's quite a few to choose from.

Another newbie and another from the archives:


BUS-430 (MAN 18.320 with Custom CB60 Evo II Body) is seen on a route 200 service operating along Flemington Road


BUS-842 a Renault/MACK PR100.2 is seen laying over on Aikman Drive in 2009

And due to an alleged black handled bike rack photo included above, I get another entry!


BUS-315 (Irisbus Agoraline with Custom Coaches CB60 Body) is seen on Flemington Road on a Route 254 service to Belconnen

Voting closes tomorrow. This is the usual plea for more votes, since we are currently in a tie.
