Getting in early for once: time for Photo of the Month submissions

The rules –

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

  ◦ * This month we are seeking photos of Woden or City West stations. 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 location.

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

Submissions close midnight 26 November, Australian Eastern daylight saving time, unless fewer than 6 photos have been submitted. Voting will commence soon afterwards and will close 30 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.

Just noticed I don't take barely enough photos anymore, let alone of at City West. Saved some good ones for these kinds of categories though. My Woden submissions don't focus much on the interchange sadly, been focused more on the buses lately.

344 and one the only times I've seen designated 944 Trainer being used for its actual purpose. 980 was doing it again today...
Woden layover on Friday 22 October at 8:37am 2021.

Never seen this bus before, but got a good snap of it (downsized file might show less). TV097A down Namatjira Drive on 17 November at 4:17pm.

Special sighting of 2619 passing through Woden for the CTM AGM teaser. 18 September at 12:50pm.

BUS499 lays over just off Callam St at Callam Offices, Phillip.

BUS982 sits on platform at City West.

Voting is now open.

But photos of City West and Woden Interchange are still welcome. (In a separate topic, of course.)
