Artist in Residence – VIP Insider Photography Competition
Our inaugural Artist In Residence photography competition is designed to showcase the best photos of the Bridge and the spectacular Sydney Harbour. The competition is open to all VIP access photographers – and shots from the Pylon, the Bridge and from the ground all have a chance to win.
LANDSCAPE – capturing the sights of Sydney Harbour as seen from the unique vantage point of the Pylon Gun Deck or the top of the Bridge. From sunrise to sunset there are so many amazing opportunities to capture all the action that makes up one of the world’s greatest harbour cities.
LOOKING UP – focusing on the Sydney Harbour Bridge from the ground, we want to see your unique perspective of how this iconic landmark connects the two sides of the city in its prime position in the heart of Sydney.
ARCHITECTURE – focusing on the structure of the engineering masterpiece that is the Sydney Harbour Bridge. From its perfectly symmetrical arches, to the unique angles of the beams of steel, we want to see the scale and drama of this loved piece of Sydney’s history. This category can be shot from the Pylon only.
