Get those camera’s out Sydney-sider’s because #SnapSydney 2015 comes to life again this week as NewsLocal newspapers once again call on all residents to help capture a day in the life of this great city through the eyes of those that live here.
On Wednesday 18 November, everyone is invited to stop and take a photo of something that sums up what life in Sydney means to them and share it on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram using #SnapSydney.
Martin Place in Sydney’s CBD will serve as the centre point of this unique community initiative. Live action will begin from 7:30am with a huge digital billboard truck streaming #SnapSydney pictures and videos all day.
Pop and hip hop artist Alphamama will perform on stage alongside a NewsLocal marquee offering free goodies and a selfie photo printer.
There will also be a series of instameets throughout the day, hosted by photographer Matthew Vandeputte.
Some of the country’s biggest names have already jumped on board including Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, NSW Premier Mike Baird, Guy Sebastian, Delta Goodrem and Tim Cahill.
And 100 NewsLocal reporters and photographers will also be documenting the historic event, with images published in real time throughout the day on a digital wall at www.snapsydney.com.au.
A ‘best of’ gallery will be published on NewsLocal and The Daily Telegraph websites the following day, with the best images to also feature in special edition wraps and inserts across the 20 NewsLocal mastheads next week.
Best photos on the day will be eligible for great Canon prizes in four categories: food, faces, places and editor’s choice.
