Best Bus

Winner announced for first Best Bus Photo competition

After receiving many entrants, the very first Best Bus Photo winner has been crowned by ABC Magazine

The inaugural ABC Best Bus Photo competition winner has been crowned for March after a strong pool of photos were submitted.

In mid-February, ABC Magazine decided to start a new competition that rewards the best-looking buses around Australia. Our launch of the ABC Best Bus competition seeks to capture the best photos of the many wonderfully maintained and operated buses and coaches in the country.

The winner of the monthly competition will have their photo shown off on the ABC Facebook cover photo slot for the entire month, while the entrant with the most beautiful bus photo will also receive a free 12-month subscription to ABC Magazine.

Before we crown our inaugural winner, there are some noteworthy mentions for some of our finalists. Out of all of the photos we received, some stood out and caught our attention. Queensland driver Matty Healey’s photo of a Clarks Translink bus in the sunset was a worthy finalist, as was Oliver Poate’s snap of a vintage Mercedes-Benz sitting next to a new Keolis Downer blue beauty.

We were also in awe of A.J. Martinelli’s terrific photo of a Victorian Dysons bus with its resplendent orange and white exterior, while Freney Transport Group’s Mercedes-Benz coach came very close to winning first prize.

But one photo emerged on top ahead of the pack. ABC has great pleasure in announcing that Ventura Bus Lines’ David Burgess has won the March Best Bus competition.

Burgess won with a stunning shot of a Ventura VLine Scania bus travelling along with its striking purple and white exterior as the Victorian sunset shines on. The timing and detail of the vehicle makes the photo eye-catching – ABC can’t wait to make it its Facebook cover photo for March.

Burgess says Ventura’s new Inverloch/ Dandenong V/Line coach comes equipped with real-time tracking for customer benefit.

The 14.3m Scania K410C three-axle coach is fitted with the latest 13-litre Euro 5 engine, with Coach Design in Queensland building the body on top.

Enjoy the stunning first winner of ABC’s Best Bus Photo, and keep an eye out for submissions opening soon for the April competition!
