The work of creative agency Pencil & Pixel, the ‘Sydney Comes to Life’ campaign will be seen across TV, print and outdoor exuding the colour, pizzazz and energy that Sydney has in abundance at this time of year.

Intertwining fashion and racing, the creative features famed jockey Hugh Bowman in Magic Bloodstock and Winx Silks in a nod to the calibre of racing talent that will be seen in Sydney this season.
