Nominations for Photo of the Month now open.

The rules:

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

  ○ * a third photo may be submitted if it meets the criteria shown here. However you may only submit a maximum of 2 photos of the same bus or of the same location.

  ○ * to add further confusion, there is a second bonus category: the new tow truck. You may submit up to 3 photos if either of the bonus category is selected; if both bonus categories are met, up to 4 photos may be submitted (max of 2 photos per category).

● 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 (for landscape aspect) 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 not accept unhosted photos - they must be stored on a photo hosting site (such as Instagram, Flickr or Facebook).

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

Voting will commence on 28 May. Voting will close 1 June.

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.

In the absence of any entries submitted before the cut off, here are the some recent images added to the ACT Bus Gallery. These entries still adhere to the rules for maximum number of photo submissions per photographer.

The first two are from me, the remaining photos have been submitted for inclusion in the Gallery.

Voting will now commence and will run for 4 days until June 5.


I was about to ask about whether anyone had seen 813, I guess my question has been answered!
