Every day we’re searching #SydneyLocal on Instagram, looking for photos to share with our followers. Here’s how to give your photos the best chance of being featured.

1. Use #SydneyLocal

And don’t forget to add a location tag so we can easily identify where you took the photo.

2. Forget the filters

We’re looking to showcase the real Sydney, so photos taken in natural lighting are usually best.

3. Keep it clean

We’re more likely to share photos without any text overlays (small watermarks are okay).
