After the huge success that was last year's 'Faces of Sydney Festival' photo competition, we're doing it again this year! Except this time around, we're adding an extra element of creativity.
In the lead up to our 2018 Festival, we're giving you the opportunity to be featured on the cover of our official Festival program, as well as throughout other parts of our marketing campaign. All you need to do is submit up to 3 photos of yourself getting clever and creative with our brand colours and we'll pick our favourites!
Winners will receive the ultimate Sydney Festival prize pack;
- Your photo on the cover of our official program.
- 5 double passes to 2018 Festival events* of your choice (*some exclusions may apply).
- A double pass to our official Festival launch event in October.
Sydney Festival director Wesley Enoch says "Everyone's a maker. Everyone spends time being creative. Last year we asked you to send in your photos, this year we want you to get creative. The colours of Sydney Festival are blue, red, yellow, black and white - what can you do with that? Nothing is too outrageous. Nothing is too much. Get crazy and see how far you can go in creating a cover shot for our program. I dare you."
Need some inspiration? Think posing with coloured balloons, experimenting with face paint, party hats, coloured wigs, costumes, props, backdrops. The sky is the limit - be as simple or as complex as you like! All we ask is that the above colours feature as much as possible and the photos are as high resolution as possible.
We have also teamed up with Marrickville's Reverse Garbage Co-operative to run two free workshops on 25 July (daytime and evening). We'll provide endless crafty materials from Reverse Garbage's impressive warehouse and a creative mentor to facilitate the sessions. All you need to do is register to attend and let the creative juices flow! Find out more about the workshops here.
