ꜜꜜ ** changed conditions, please read ** ꜜꜜ

As we are currently being asked to use public transport only where absolutely necessary [1], Photo of the Month is being revised to place the emphasis onto historical photos. For this month, the only photos that we are seeking are of Withdrawn ACTION Renaults [2].

As such the rules will be modified each month depending on what photos are being sought.

This month's rules:

● Submitted photograph must be of a ACTION Renault (any model) which has been withdrawn from service by 29 February 2020 [2];

● Two photographs may be submitted by any one person, but the same bus may not appear in both photos;

● previously submitted photos may be used unless the photo has won a Photo of the Month or Photo of the Year vote;

● 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

● photos narrower than 640 pixels will not be accepted

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 (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 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 31 May (unless extended), Australian Eastern standard time.

Voting will commence on 1 June. Voting will close by 3 June.

The winning photo will be loaded to the actbus.net 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.

² - photos must feature a former ACTION Renault/Mack bus of any model (PR100, PR100.2, PR100.3 or PR180.2); bus in photo may be operating with ACTION or a subsequent owner; photos of buses withdrawn AFTER 29 February 2020 may not submitted (unless the photo also includes a bus which was withdrawn prior to this date) – please refer to ACT Bus Wiki if unsure about when a bus was withdrawn.
