Take shot to show off city
FIRE up your smartphones and get those creative juices flowing – #SnapSydney is on again.
The all-day event, when the best city in the world takes a collective selfie, will be held this year on Wednesday, November 18.
#SnapSydney is the brainchild of NewsLocal newspapers, publisher of The Standard, and was conceived to celebrate a day in the life of Sydney.
Readers are invited to take a snapshot of what they love about Sydney over a 24-hour period and share it via social media.
The best pictures will be published in NewsLocal newspapers and on our website, and this year you can go in the running for some great prizes.
Last year’s inaugural event went viral with more than 7000 photographs snapped by readers, capturing the full experience of living in Australia’s most exciting city. There were photographs of exquisite beauty, images of pure joy and pictures both poignant and thought-provoking.
Celebrities and politicians got into the act with Premier Mike Baird an enthusiastic participant.
#SnapSydney was not only embraced by Sydneysiders, it also won a prestigious PANPA publishing award last month. This year’s event will be bigger and better than ever with prizes for the best photograph in three categories – food, play and places – for those who want to do more than just snap a great picture.
Respected Sydney legal firm Brydens Lawyers is our major campaign sponsors in 2015, and we thank them for their support.
The Mounties Group of clubs are sponsoring the food category, and participants can win by taking pictures of food, dining and entertaining on the day.
Canon is providing $8000 worth of photographic prizes which can be won. Visit snapsydney.com.au.
So start thinking about how to say: I Love This City.
