With the "stay at home" orders lifted, Photo of the Month will remove restrictions on when photos were allowed to be taken.

However, to allow for a gradual easing of restrictions, old photos will again be permitted to be submitted (subject to some limitations).

In brief: you may submit up to 3 photos in total; up to 2 photos may have been taken anytime, but must not have been submitted previously and up to 2 photos taken prior to 1 September 2020 which may include previously submitted photos (excluding winners).

And now the full rules:

● two photographs may be submitted by each member provided they have not been submitted before*

  ◦ * additionally, this month each member may submit up to two additional old photos[1]. If you submit a photo meeting this criterion, you may post up to three photos but you may only submit a maximum of 2 photos of the same bus/tram.

● photos 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)

● photos must be have taken legally - ACT Bus does not encourage or condone trespassing

● submitted photographs must prominently feature:

  ◦ public transport infrastructure (such as bus stop, bus station, bus depot, Light Rail line, tram depot) within the ACT / Queanbeyan region (location must be specified)


  ◦ a bus, tram or support vehicle from the ACT or Queanbeyan (taken within the region or a former ACT/Queanbeyan bus) where -
    ▪ the vehicle is in focus
    ▪ the fleet or registration number 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 by replying to this forum topic and attaching the image; to ensure consistency, photos must be displayed with a width of 640 (or height of 640 if a "portrait" aspect) - photos larger 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].

To submit photos from Instagram, you must post a reply with a caption and paste the URL of the Instagram image. Photos not publicly visible cannot be submitted. We will no longer accept unhosted photos - they must be stored on a photo hosting site (such as Instagram, Flickr or Facebook).

Submissions close midnight 27 October, Australian Eastern daylight time, unless fewer than 6 photos have been submitted.

Voting will commence on 28 October. Voting will close 1 November.

The winning photo will be loaded to the website and posted to ACT Bus on Facebook and Instagram. 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 and Instagram pages.

1 - "old photos" refers to any photo meeting the photo of the month criteria which was taken prior to 1 September 2020; previously submitted photos may be re-submitted with the exception of photos which have won a Photo of the Month or Photo of the Year vote, or were submitted for September or October 2021.
