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 actbus.net 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.
