Take shot to show off city

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

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.
