ABC announces Best Bus December winner

Following last month’s stunning shot of a Nuline Charter bus in full flight courtesy of Brad Woodford, December’s Best Bus winner hasn’t disappointed.

December Best Bus goes to Damian Shiambi after he submitted a wonderful photo of a Ventura vehicle at Tooradin Foreshore.

Shiambi’s winning photo beat a hotly contested field, including a clean McKenzie’s Mercedes/Irizar coach from Brad Sanders and Joshua Adams’ great submission of a Nuline Charter coach.

Neil Hicks was also a worthy finalist for his photo of a BLK Auto double-decker bus for Port Stephens Coaches.

But none of these wonderful photos could surpass Shiambi and his shot of a Ventura Marcopolo coach.

The new vehicle, 1626, was delivered to Ventura about four months ago, with Shiambi lucky enough to be allocated the bus for charters and school runs.

“I’ve been to places like the snow in Mt Hotham, taken the army to Puckapunyal and done plenty of city and Phillip Island charters in this bus,” Shiambi told ABC.

“I took the photo at Tooradin Foreshore, after I had just finished cleaning it and had some spare time on my way down to a charter.”

As the winner of Best Bus December, Shiambi has received a free 12-month subscription to ABC magazine, while the winning photo is also being shown off as ABC’s Facebook cover photo for December.
