Deadline approaches for your local buses photo competition!

bus 277 Preston

EAST Yorkshire Motor Services (EYMS) is running its photography competition again for 2014 – and the deadline is this Friday (tomorrow) 15th August!

The bus company is looking for people to send in original and imaginative EYMS-themed photos.

It can be of buses, coaches, depots, staff… as long as your picture has an EYMS theme, we want to see it! – EYMS press release

If you have taken a picture in the last five years that might be suitable for the competition – then send it in . The best entry chosen will receive a £100 voucher to spend on photography equipment at Hull’s Hilton Photographic shop.

Winning pictures will be displayed at the 2014 Big Bus Day event at Hull’s Streetlife Museum on Saturday 30th August 2014.

The standard of entries was very high last year, do you think you can do better?

Take a look at 2013’s winners for some inspiration, then get out there and take some shots of your own.  We’re looking for photographs that are a bit different, and show that the photographer has really thought about the picture, and used their imagination.

Here are some tips:

  • We get loads of photos of buses parked outside our depots, so if you take a photo like this, make sure you add your own imaginative twist to it.
  • Think about your background – a great photo can be spoiled by an inconveniently placed electricity pylon!
  • Plan ahead – take test shots, and decide exactly where you want to stand to get the perfect shot.
  • Don’t forget to take the weather into account when you’re deciding where and when to take your photos.
  • Stand out – will your photo catch the judge’s eye?
  • Always remember to take safety into account when taking your photos – never put yourself or others in danger.

Send your photos to EYMS in one of the following ways:

Remember to include your name, contact details and title of your picture(s).

Entries must reach EYMS by 5pm on Friday 15th August 2014Each entrant may enter a maximum of 5 photos. 

Please read the full competition rules before entering.  Good luck!
