- Vivid Sydney 2016 had us at ‘Hello’
Oh how time flies! We've been partnered with Vivid Sydney for three years – but without a doubt this one was our favourite. As always, there was magic in the air, but the light displays were more tantalising than ever.
Over 23 nights, Sydney put on a show boasting a record 2.3 million visitors – we miss the madness already.
Vivid Sydney is a photographer’s playground, and every year we're absolutely blown away by how creatively our photography communities capture their interpretation of the festival of lights. The Cathedral of Light, in the Royal Botanical Gardens, was the most extravagant installation to photograph this year. It was immense – an arched tunnel, 60 meters long, made of tens-of-thousands of white LEDs.
Over the 23 nights, we challenged photographers to show us a different side of Vivid Sydney, then we featured the best images on our Instagram channel as #VividCanon ‘Shot of the Day’. Not only did the photographers do a good job, they blew our socks off! See for yourself in the electric gallery below.
We're sure you'll agree – Vivid Sydney 2017 can't come any sooner.
