We're still doing this -- Submissions are open for Photo of the Month (March 2019). And here's 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.

  • two* photographs may be submitted by any one person, provided they have not been submitted before
  • 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 or tram 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 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 street or suburb signs#. If you submit a photo (or two) 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.

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 24 February, Australian Eastern daylight-savings Time.

Voting will commence on 25 February. Voting will close 28 February.

# Photo may be either of a street or suburb sign on its own or in the background of a bus/tram/infrastructure photo. A street sign is either a "fingerboard" sign or a large directional sign. For a suburb sign, the full sign must be visible.

Some recent AOA photos from me -

Bus 443 entering Kippax (21 Feb 2019)

Bus 511 at Westfield Belconnen (20 Feb 2019)

Addendum: bus photo which includes street sign (if you look hard enough) -

Bus 590 turning onto Cohen St from Lathlain St (24 Feb 2019)


Interesting that they've updated the rear portion of the AOA but the rest remains the same by the looks of it.
