The month is getting away from me. So about time to open up Photo of the Month.

The rules:

The winning photo will be loaded to the website and posted to ACT Bus on Facebook. The winner and runner(s)-up 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 and Facebook page.

  • 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)

  • preferred photo width is 800 pixels or more, but 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 or @actbusspotter (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.

Unhosted photos may be uploaded into the ACT Bus Gallery which will apply a watermark. Requests to remove the watermark will not be considered.

*This month we are seeking photos of buses 894 to 940 inclusive . By submitting a photo which matches this criterion, you may post up to three photos - but all three must not be of the same bus.

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 there are insufficient photos for a vote to take place, in which case nominations will be extended.

QCity Piecart 1796.MO poses for photos in the lakeside carpark at the base of ANZAC Pde.

ex-ACTION BUS.803 (now MO.334 with Pink Party Bus Canberra) travels past Parliament House on Parliament Dr.

BUS.903 leans around a corner at Kippax.

Bus 400

Bus 539 escapes Fraser West Terminus as a storm approaches.

While Bus 622 travels along Hibberson St, Gungahlin.


Buses 622 and 412 meet ex 803 at Belconnen Community Bus Station.

Bus 622 meets ex State Transit 2619 on Mulligans Flat Road, Bonner.

Seeing as the bonus category is Buses 894 to 940, I present 894 with 940 at City Bus Station.

Voting is open. 5 votes per user - use your votes wisely.

Another close vote - with Bus 511 narrowly winning. Well done to all.

The bonus category next month may be the remaining Renault PR100.3s. But I may have to find a way to discourage photos of AOA artics and Bus 622. (Bear in mind 623 & 624 might be in service in about two weeks from now.)
