Nominations for Photo of the Month August 2013 are now open. 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 (subject to cropping). The winner and runner-up(s) 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/Queanbeyan bus

  • photos must not have been previously submitted for POTM

  • the bus must be the main subject of the photograph (or feature prominently)

  • 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.

To ensure consistency, photos must be displayed with a width of 640 (or height if 640 if a "portrait" aspect). Photos narrower than 640 pixels will not be accepted; photos wider than 640 MUST use the option width=640 in the image tag - as follows "[img width=640]".

Submissions close midnight 24 July, Australian Eastern Standard Time.

A rule change from this month: a minimum of 4 photos must be submitted for voting to commence. Nominations may be extended if four have not been submitted, but at the end of the extended period if there are still fewer than 4 photos no vote will take place, all nominations will roll over to September and a runner-up photo from last year will instead be used as the Facebook and Website photo of the month.


For once I actually had a nomination, but alas my camera was stolen with memory card so you can all imagine the picture, lol.

BUS 142 at the Kate Krace street layover at night.

The first submission, of Bus 397 at Gungahlin Marketplace, was received by email from Elizabeth, who writes

Quote from: ElizabethThis is the first citybound bus out of Gungahlin, 58 at 5.55am. Despite the early hour there are quite a few commuters.

Here we have Bus 526 awaiting instructions at Manuka Oval.

Then we have Bus 395 trying to find some old buses out near the Alexander Maconochie Centre.
