I’ve been involved in an advisory team set up by the NSW Government last year to develop the Digital Sydney Initiative. It’s been a great experience for me to meet other people who work in the same city but in different parts of the digital industry such as research and development, education, business and digital content in all its many forms.
Digital Sydney aims to showcase Sydney as an international leader in digital business, education, creative collaboration and innovation. It’s about community building, aggregating events across a range of digital industries, and promoting ourselves more effectively to the world.
We’ve just launched our community and have developed a Sydney Branding Online Competition which is explained in the above video.
If you live or work in NSW and have an eye for design, this is a great opportunity to have a go at creating a visual identity that best represents Sydney’s digital community. There’s a cash prize of $10,000 and designs will be judged by a respected panel of leaders from Sydney’s digital community. Simply download the competition brief and submit your designs by April 11. The winner will be announced at the official launch of Digital Sydney on May 30.
Look out for more Digital Sydney events and activities coming up during the Vivid Festival in May.
