Mayor of Fairfield City, Frank Carbone says the competition will close soon and invites Sydneysiders to visit Fairfield City and snap up what they like best about our City.

“Over the last month Council has received many entries that capture the unique beauty of our wonderful city, and I’ve been blown away by the images I’ve seen so far,” he said.

“Our #CaptureFairfield competition is a unique way to celebrate our City,” said Mayor Carbone. “Fairfield is known for its diversity in culture and experiences, and I look forward to people expressing this through their photos.

“The winning entries will be publically displayed to the community during Local Government Week from 31 July to 6 August at Council’s main administration centre, libraries, leisure centres and at the mobile offices in town centres.
