Photo of the Month is open for nominations. * Now with added spiel *
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.
- 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)
- 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)
- preferred photo width is 800 pixels or more, but photos narrower than 640 pixels will not be accepted
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 Renault PR100.3 buses. 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 27 March
, Australian Eastern Daylight savings time, or once 10 photos have been submitted - whichever comes first.
