After the huge success of last year’s Faces of Sydney Festival photo competition, we decided to bring it back this year to find our magazine cover images – but this time with a twist.
We challenged Sydney Festival fans to submit a cover photo that used the Festival’s colours in an unusual, interesting, crafty and creative way.
"Everyone's a maker,” said Sydney Festival Director Wesley Enoch. “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?”
The winners scored their place on the Sydney Festival magazine cover, as well as a stack of tickets to the Festival. We also featured all our wonderful entrants on the back cover. See all the covers below.
