August 2013 Photo Competition
#1
July 2013 Photo Competition
Chosen by July 2013's Monthly Photo Competition winner, Daniel, once more victorious after Liam briefly snatched his place, the topic for August 2013's Monthly Photo Competition is: "Twins".
"Twins Days" is a festival for biological twins (and other multiples, e.g. triplets, quads) which has taken place every summer since 1976 in Twinsburg, Ohio, when the festival was founded by Revco's Charles R. DeHaven. It is the largest annual gathering of twins in the world. Although "World Twin Day" was hosted last month here in the UK, I think it's still appropriate to have it as the topic for this month's photo competition as the above mentioned "Twins Day" hosted in Ohio actually starts today.
So - what do I have to take a photo of to enter? Like twins, buses can be identical or non-identical. Taking inspiration from this group on Flickr, you have to take a photo of two or more buses together in one photograph. The buses do not have to be identical (same livery or batch), but they can be.

How do I enter?
All entries should be sent to competitions@northeastbuses.co.uk by 24/08/13. The subject of the e-mail should clearly outline the e-mails purpose (i.e. “Monthly Photo Competition Entry – August 2013”). You must attach your photo to the e-mail, and must also include your site username within the body of the e-mail. Again, as stated above, if you would like your photo to be watermarked if it wins and is subsequently uploaded to our Social Media websites, do attach a second, watermarked copy of the photo also.

A very interesting topic you have picked there mind Daniel, I shall be entering as I have quite a few photos of more than Bus or Identical Buses together. Just need to pick the best one. Not entering straight away as I would like to try and get a few other shots of this type.

Thanks, haha. I'm trying to make my topics related to events that occur during the month of the photo competition taking place (i.e. the topic of 'green' had a relation to Stagecoach or something at the time if my memory serves!)
Also hopefully broadens out the topic a bit and hopefully attract a few more people to the comp! More photos the better, eh? Big Grin

Back to a relatively decent number of entrants again! I give you August 2013.

Big shout out to all of those who sent in an image - appreciated as always. We've been sent in some non-identical twins, some identical twins, some non-identical triplets, some identical quadruplets and a set of identical twins and triplets... A lot to choose from this month, but what tickles your fancy? Even if you didn't send in an image, get voting! We received a staggeringly high 22 votes last month, so let's see if we can top that this month.

The poll is available at the top of this thread, and the photos below can be enlarged by clicking them.
