Dark Mofo may be over, but we’ll always have the memories. Oh, and all the sizzling snaps of Paint the Town Red!

With over 900 entries, it was pretty tricky to whittle it down to just five finalists. There were sweet shots of the waterfront, spectacular snaps of the Tasman Bridge (and Spectra!), and even some red sheep. Luckily for us, YOU get to decide who the ultimate winner will be!

Check out the five shortlisted #pttr2018 shots below, and vote for your favourite via The Mercury’s People’s Poll. Voting closes at 5pm on Thursday 28 June 2018.

Presenting (in no particular order) our five finalists…
