“Their honest, authentic interpretation of Sydney life entertains Sydneysiders of all ages.

“Little Sydney Lives is a favourite exhibition among the people of Sydney and proves that art is for everyone no matter their age.”

The Little Sydney Lives winners in each of the 3 to 7 and 8 to 11 years categories will be announced before the opening of the exhibition on 14 September 2017.

Finalists will be vying for the winners’ prize in each of the categories that includes a new camera and accessories worth $500.

Little Sydney Lives is part of the City of Sydney’s year-round Art & About program of events and temporary art projects in unusual spaces throughout the city.
