Yes, it's time again for Photo of the Month nominations. 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 (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 photo submissions per user

  • photos must not have been previously submitted for POTM

  • photo must be user's own work or submitted with permission of the photographer


The photographs must feature:

  • bus infrastructure (such as Bus stop, bus station, bus depot) with the ACT / Queanbeyan region (location must be specified)


and/or

  • a bus from the ACT or Queanbeyan (taken within the region or a former ACT/Queanbeyan bus) where -
    • the bus is the main subject of the photograph (or features prominently)

    • the bus is in focus

    • the fleet or registration number of the bus is identifiable (or supplied by photographer if not visible in photograph)



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 October, Australian Eastern Daylight Savings Time.

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 December and a runner-up photo from last year will instead be used as the Facebook and Website photo of the month.

Possible photo ideas: updated AOA livery on 394, new bus stops on Commonwealth and Kings Ave.
