Photo of the Month - September 2012
« on: August 18, 2012, 12:06:45 PM »
Nominations are now open for Photo of the Month for September 2012. 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.

Here are the rules:

  • no more than two photos per user
  • photos must be taken within the ACT or Queanbeyan or else be of a former ACT bus
  • photos must not have been previously submitted for POTM
  • the bus must be the main subject of the photograph
  • the bus must be in focus
  • the fleet or registration number of the bus must be identifiable (or supplied by photographer if not visible in photograph)
  • photograph must be user's own work or submitted with permission of the photographer
Refer here for full ACT Bus photo submission conditions.

For ease of viewing, photos should be displayed with a width of 640. You can do this by including the option width=640 in the image tag - as follows "[img width=640]"

Submissions close midnight 25 August.

A new rule for this month: a minimum of 6 photos is required for voting to take place. Should there not be 6 photos by close of nominations, non-winning photos from previous months will be added to the nominations - photos will be selected by myself and/or Buzz Killington.

Considering the fact that it's been ages since I've done this...


Firstly I have Bus 725 travelling along Templestowe Ave CONDER travelling to Bonython on a School Route 526.


Secondly is Bus 872 travelling along Isabella Dr on a Xpresso 786 to Tuggeranong Interchange.
