Fantastical, botanical, sibling-rivalrous, splashy or routine – we’re looking for stirring images that reveal what our young residents find intriguing.

Celebrating the unique viewpoint of Sydney’s young people, Little Sydney Lives ends with a large-format gallery displaying the works of 20 junior photographers from 1 August to 25 August.
