  • 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)

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.

Voting closes tomorrow morning. So this is the regular plea for anyone who has yet to vote to do so.

We have a very close spread of votes at the moment.

And there ends another year's worth of Photo of the Month. Thanks to all who submitted photos and voted.

Photo of the Year - round 1 - will commence in a few days time.

And a really early warning, the bonus photo category for either February or March will be of the new Tram/LRV once track testing commences.
