Competition captures everyday moments

Established and emerging photographers can enter the City of Sydney's Australian Life photography competition.

The competition captures the stories of Australians, from everyday life to the rugged landscape of the outback.

"This is an opportunity for both established and emerging photographers to share their most engaging and intriguing images that depict Australian life in all its beautiful diversity and complexity," Sydney Lord Mayor Clover Moore said.

In 2018, Joshua Morris from Marrickville won a $10,000 prize for an image of a flamenco dancer performing to residents of an aged care home.

It was titled Pepa Molina, and some of the residents of the Parque Habitacional. The judges said it is a "real celebration of a female artist in the centre of practice".

Australian Life is part of Sydney's year-round art and about program, which has temporary art projects in unusual spaces throughout the city.

A panel of judges will select 28-finalists to exhibit their photographs in an outdoor exhibition to be held in Hyde Park from September 19-October 6.
