They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but how much is an emoji worth?

The Canberra city twitter account, @Canberra, challenged fans to describe Canberra in three emojis. Famous faces and local legends got into this Twitter conversation to share some of their favourite aspects of the capital.

Eight times BMX and Mountain Bike World Champion Caroline Buchanan shared her love of Canberra’s bike-friendly design that inspired her to create a career out of pedal power. Caroline also raved about her love of the Canberra lifestyle and local businesses that make each day in Canberra one to remember.

Other sporting enthusiasts chimed in detailing the world-class facilities that Canberra, home to the Australian Institute of Sport, offers to residents.

Art lovers and foodies aced this challenge, getting creative to convey their favourite parts of Canberra.

The Chief Minister of the ACT joined the twitter conversation, citing Canberra’s knowledge economy, status as a cool, little capital and welcoming nature to all.

But let’s face facts, most can sum up Canberra with just one emoji – β€˜πŸ’šβ€™.
