The #SCSSNAP2017 exhibition opens today, presenting a selection of images from the Instagram photography competition which Grimshaw architects held in collaboration with Open House Melbourne and CivicNexus/Southern Cross Station to mark the 10thanniversary of Southern Cross Station.

The competition invited photography enthusiasts and visitors to and residents of Melbourne to share their photos of Southern Cross Station to celebrate the role the building plays in the city, and what it means to the people of Victoria. Judged by the Lord Mayor of Melbourne, architectural photographer John Gollings, Open House Melbourne executive director Emma Telfer, and Grimshaw managing partner Neil Stonell, the winning images of the competition have been selected for their artistic merit, originality, and how they celebrate Southern Cross Station as a key part of Melbourne’s built environment and identity.

A unanimous decision was reached for the winning entry captured by Steve Young, of which the Lord Mayor says “is outstanding in placing Southern Cross Station into the city’s built environment and identity.”

Second prize was awarded to Kar Gee Tan for his image of Platforms 9 and 10. John Gollings says, “This image is the most evocative and surreal expression of the light and roof forms but is a well-expressed description of the busyness of the station.”

Third prize was an equal draw, awarded to Damon Carr and David Mason whose images capture the nostalgia of regional travel and the iconic detail of the Southern Cross Station roof, respectively. Emma Telfer said, “Both these images offer an artistic expression of the beauty of the station’s architecture.”

The public will be able to vote for their favourite image at the #SCSSNAP2017 exhibition, to be held at Grimshaw’s Melbourne studio from 11am-3pm, Thursday 17-Wednesday 23 August 2017. The People’s Choice Award will be announced on Wednesday 23 August, the prize for which is a $200 Michaels Camera Video and Digital voucher.
