Little Sydney Lives is the City of Sydney’s children’s photography competition. Cheeky, delightful and often surprising, their images provide insight into the lives and imaginations of our junior go-getters. 

Little Sydney Lives is produced by the City of Sydney as part of Art & About Sydney, an ongoing program of temporary art projects in unusual spaces. 

See the 20 finalist images up close, on exhibition in the Customs House Library, level 2.
