#SnapSydney A Day In The Life is an initiative by NewsLocal newspapers which aims to document Sydney over 24 hours on 26th November 2014. The campaign, which has already gone viral on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, has received over 7,000 photos (and counting!) and aims to showcase just why Sydney is the best place on Earth. According to the Daily Telegraph, everyone is invited to take a picture that sums up what daily life means to them and to share it with fellow Sydneysiders. The rules are simple: Upload an image of an essential part of life or a picture of how Sydneysiders like to relax, accompanied with the #SnapSydney hashtag.
