Yes, it's as good a time as any to call for entries for Photo of the Month.

The winning photo will be loaded to the actbus.net front page for a month (and added to the POTM archive) and posted to ACT Bus on Facebook. The winner and runner-up(s) 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.

The rules:
  • 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)

  • photos narrower than 640 pixels will not be accepted

If possible, please supply date or month of photo.

Refer here for full ACT Bus photo submission conditions.

Photos can be submitted three ways: (1) by posting to this forum topic (2) by posting on ACT Bus facebook page (and mentioning POTM) (3) by emailing ACT Bus (submit a "contact us" form), or contacting us through our Facebook page, and we'll send you an email address.

* This month we are seeking photos of: buses with retro-fitted Hanover LED destos. If you submit such a photo, you may still submit 2 other new photos.

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 in the image tag - as follows "[img width=640]".

Submissions close midnight 23 April, Australian Eastern Standard Time.

Voting will commence on 24 April. Voting will be opened to guests as well as members. Voting will close on 1 May.

To mix things up, let's goes for the newer buses with Bus 563 exiting Woden Bus Station.

Then Bus 562 on Perry Drive, Chapman.

Fairly sure the rules stated that nominations closed at MIDNIGHT - last night.

Anyhoo, nominations now closed - voting open against 10 photos (select up to 4).

Since it appears someone was attempting to cast multiple votes, voting has been reset and is now back to being restricted to forum members.
