Submissions are open for Photo of the Month (October). 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)
      [li]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.

    * To update our Wiki images, this month we are seeking photos of
    • Irisbus Agora Line (near-side image)
    • Scania L94UB (off-side image)
    • MAN 18.310 CNG (near-side image)
    • MAN 18.320 (off-side image)

    If you submit a photo (or two) meeting any of these criteria#, you may post up to three photos but you may only submit a maximum of 2 photos of the same bus.

    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].

To mark the upgrade of all the Irisbuses to Hanover LED displays, the bonus category for next month will be Irisbus Agora Lines with an LED display - but only where a photo doesn't already exist - and also Bus 301 in its AOA wrap. The full list will be published when the POTM topic for November is posted.
