It's as good a time as any open up the nominations for the last POTM for this year - entries may now be submitted for Photo of the Month for December 2012. In addition to being shown on the 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. The winner and runner-up will also be included in the Photo of the Year vote.

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 23 November.

To ensure there are sufficient photos to choose from, 6 photos are 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.

To get things going, I'll start with two tugga bendies

First up is Bus 509 leaving National Museum of Australia.

Next is Bus 507 at City Bus Station before going past Exhibition Park.

As only 5 new photos were submitted, a previous entry has been added to the field -

Bus 390 at Tuggeranong Bus Station, submitted by Mayor McBaggage for the September 2011 POTM

Voting is now open. 2 votes per user.

Photo submitted after the cut-off time, so not included in the vote (and attachment removed). Next POTM will be held in January - please consider re-submitting photo then.
