2011 Winners Announced
The MOH team and Judges Dianna Snape and Mark Munro congratulate this years competition winners.
There are several entries that have been recognised as Highly commended and the judges have provided comments.
Entries were judged on the basis of three criteria - creativity, quality of photography and significance to the Melbourne Open House theme of good architecture.
Prizes have been awarded to the best photos in five categories:
/ People/crowds; and
/ Series (up to five images of the one building).
With over 3,000 images in the MOH group pool on flickr we are pleased to announce that this years winning entries are:
Exterior: Craig George
Judges Comments: A great take on a highly photographed subject. Well composed and considered. Great use of reflection to infer the architecture.
Interior: Timothy Morris
Judges Comments: Both Judges were drawn to this image. The scaffolding in the interior works in this shot. Great to see people considering the feel and emotive merit of their images.
Detail: Nicolas Miltos
Judges Comments: The minimalist nature of the simplest elements make this image just divine. We acknowledge that some people may not get this choice but it is outstanding for it purest approach and the subtleties of form, light, shadow and highlight and the slightest sense of materiality. I just loved this shot.
People/crowds: Monika Pedzinski
Judges Comments: We both love how this photographer has made a resolved composition out of a little chaos. The anonymity is great. It perfectly expresses the feeling of queueing and the way people move around on MOH days with their program books.
Series: Timothy Morris
Judges Comments: This Series was the most resolved and fluid from a stylist and cohesive standpoint. The Judges liked the continuity and consideration the photographer has expressed in the series and the graphic nature of the suite of images.
