Australian Life


How would you capture Australian Life in a single image?

 From the epic to the intimate, from the harsh to the fragile, Australia is a country capable of holding so many experiences.

This year, Art & About Sydney’s much-loved Sydney Life exhibition has grown to encompass our entire continent, with photographers giving us their unique take on what Australian Life means to them.

Our judges have picked 22 finalists and a $10,000 prize-winner. Don’t miss the stunning large-scale reproductions of their work on show along the St James walkway of Hyde Park north.

The winner will be announced on September 19 at Friday Night Live.
