Photo of the Month - March 2016
« on: February 18, 2016, 10:33:51 AM »
Submissions for Photo of the Month are now open - the regular rules have returned.

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)
    and/or
    • 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 four ways: (1) by posting to this forum topic (2) by posting on ACT Bus facebook page (and mentioning POTM) (3) by tweeting to @actbus (4) by contacting ACT Bus (submit a "contact us" form, send a message to our Facebook page or send me a Private Message) - and we'll send you an email address.

* This month we are seeking photos featuring: Bus stations at Kippax, Gungahlin and Barton#. If you submit such a photo, you may still submit 2 other new photos (3 photos in total).

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 or height=640 in the image tag. For example: [img width=640] instead of [img].

Submissions close midnight 25 February, Australian Eastern Daylight savings Time, unless extended.

Voting will commence on 26 February. Voting will close on 1 March.


# - photo must show any of these bus stations in their current form, other than Gungahlin which can be from before the GMP extension construction started.

I feel the orange buses deserve to be represented too, so:


Bus 102 operates a northbound 65 through Fadden (4/2/16)



Bus 151 operates school run 586 through Fadden (9/12/15). The school bus destos are the only cool thing about Irises and Darts
