a day in the life
FOR a man with a choice of waterfront views, it is no surprise that Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull loves Sydney’s magnificent harbour.
The PM believes it makes the perfect backdrop for NewsLocal’s #SnapSydney community event - being held on November 18 - celebrating his home town.
“Is Sydney the best city in the world? It was hard to beat when I was out on the harbour last weekend and everyone has their own special Sydney spot,” Mr Turnbull said.
“Help showcase our city by sending an image of a moment in your day on November 18 to #snapsydney.”
Mr Turnbull, who has a home at Point Piper and can also bunk down at the official PM’s residence Kirribilli House across the harbour if he chooses, is also a dedicated fan of the city’s public transport system.
Trains, buses and trams featured in many contributed shots last year as people made their way around Sydney.
The idea behind #SnapSy-
dney - A Day in the Life is to encourage Sydneysiders to document a typical 24 hours in the most beautiful city in the world.
X Factor judge Dannii Minogue was one of many celebrities won over by last year’s inaugural event which produced more than 7000 pictures snapped by readers.
This year’s #SnapSydney 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 in three categories — food, faces and places.
Just take a picture that sums up Sydney on November 18 and share it on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
The best pictures taken on the day will be published in NewsLocal newspapers and on our website.
