If you love Sydney Life and take photographs, amateur or professionally, then don't forget to enter the City of Sydney's 'Sydney Life' photography competition. Not only is there $10,000 up for grabs, the outdoor public exhibition is also, of itself, becoming part of Sydney Life and tens of thousands will be transfixed by the large images of the finalists displayed in Hyde Park.

Grungy, glam, grimy or fantasic, real or surreal. All visions and emotions of Sydney are encouraged in photographs.

Sydney Life is part of Art & About which is this year celebrating it'ss 10th birthday.

The 22 finalist photographs to be blown up to bed sheet size and displayed along the walkway of Hyde Park North throughout festival, which runs from 22 September until 23 October.

“Sydney Life is a wonderful example of taking art out of traditional galleries and into new and different places like Sydney’s parks, laneways and squares,” said Lord Mayor Clover Moore MP.

“I hope photographers across Sydney let their imaginations run wild as they capture what Sydney means to them and help breath fresh artistic life into our public spaces.”

Last year Sydney Life attracted more than 500 entries – images ranged from a showgirl driving down Elizabeth Street and a refugee from Sierra Leone, to prized Charolais bulls and a modern day Ken and Barbie.

The winner was amateur Bondi photographer Nicholas May, whose stunning black and white image “Australia Day, 2010” depicted dozens of Sydneysiders trying to cool off on the rocks above Bondi Beach on a scorching summer’s day.

Entries close at 5:00pm on Monday, 4th July. For more information, the artist brief and entry form, visit: www.artandabout.com.au

Art & About Sydney runs from 22 September until 23 October 2011.

Sydney life art and about photography competition you say is open to amateur's, no it bloody isn't, only profesionals get in to this compertition, year after year Sydney city council keep giving it to SMH photographers like tamara dean and dean sewell who take pictures of sydney life that isn't real with there altered crap. You must also submit a bio of your exp as a photographer, what a joke, doesn't a untouched, uncroped picture tell the big picture of what your like as a photographer. A friend of mine has gone in it yaer after year with some really nice untouched pictures of the real sydney life only to miss out to tamara dean and dean sewells rubbish.
