Amaz­ing city shows off its charms

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - #SNAPSYDNEY -

AS READ­ERS can see in the sur­round­ing SnapSyd­ney pages, the pic­tures were a stun­ning tes­ta­ment to the nat­u­ral beauty of our home and the spirit and di­ver­sity of its peo­ple.

Read­ers were keen to cap­ture their favourite foods, cafes, pets, places and faces from ev­ery cor­ner of the city with ad­di­tional pic­tures taken by more than 100 re­porters and pho­tog­ra­phers from land, sea and a he­li­copter in the air.

NewsLo­cal pho­tog­ra­pher John Ap­p­le­yard spent two hours in a chop­per, cap­tur­ing a birds-eye view of the city which re­vealed some un­usual an­gles of Sydney as well as strange beauty in what are oth­er­wise drab col­lec­tions of roads, rail tracks and build­ings.

At Martin Place, peo­ple had the chance to get their photo taken with NewsLo­cal mas­cot Journo Jack and to see it dis­played on a dig­i­tal pic­ture wall while en­joy­ing a free lunch and en­ter­tain­ment.

SnapSyd­ney was sup­ported by ma­jor spon­sor Brydens Lawyers as well as cat­e­gory spon­sors the Moun­ties Group. Many par­tic­i­pants also en­tered a com­pe­ti­tion to win Canon cam­eras.
