Help us cel­e­brate our city

SYD­NEY, get ready for your close-up.

On Wed­nes­day, Novem­ber 18, we are ask­ing Syd­neysiders to help us cel­e­brate this glo­ri­ous city as part of #SnapSydney — A Day In The Life.

Last year’s in­au­gu­ral event went vi­ral with more than 7000 pic­tures snapped by read­ers.

This year’s #SnapSydney com­mu­nity event — run in con­junc­tion with #SnapCoast on the Cen­tral Coast — is of­fer­ing more than $7500 worth of Canon cam­era equip­ment as prizes for the best shots taken by read­ers of NewsLo­cal pub­li­ca­tions in three cat­e­gories — food, faces and places.

All you need to do is take a pic­ture that sums up Syd­ney any time over the 24 hours of Novem­ber 18 and share it on Face­book, Twit­ter or In­sta­gram.

Singer, ac­tor and The Voice judge Delta Goodrem thinks Syd­ney is the purrfect pho­to­graphic model.

Goodrem, who is star­ring as Griz­abella in the mu­si­cal Cats at the Capi­tol Theatre, loves the idea of a com­mu­nity cam­paign cel­e­brat­ing Syd­ney’s beauty.

“I never, ever cease to be amazed ev­ery day by the Opera House and the Har­bour Bridge,” she said.

“I know it sounds so sim­ple but the Botanic Gar­dens are one of my favourite spots — and then you look up and see th­ese amaz­ing land­marks.”

The best pic­tures taken on Novem­ber 18 will be pub­lished in NewsLo­cal news­pa­pers and on our web­site.

Re­spected Syd­ney le­gal firm Bry­dens Lawyers are our ma­jor cam­paign spon­sors in 2015.

The Moun­ties Group of clubs are spon­sor­ing the food cat­e­gory.

Novem­ber 18 is less than two weeks away so it’s time to snap to it and start plan­ning your pic­tures.

SPON­SORED In­sta­gram: Post your pic­ture us­ing the hash­tag #SnapSydney and tag us @SnapSydney so we can re­post your pic­ture
