Melbourne’s favourite boutique shopping destination, The Strand Melbourne, is calling on budding photographers and those with an eye for detail to participate in its inaugural Colours of The Strand Melbourne photography competition, running from July to September.
Melburnians can snap their favourite shots inspired by The Strand Melbourne’s monthly hero colours of green, yellow and blue, for the chance to win a colourful collection of luxury fashion and accessories from the centre’s designer set each month.
From cityscapes to the Yarra River, iconic laneways and bustling traffic, the showcase celebrates The Strand Melbourne’s beloved hometown through a colourful lens that pays homage to the centre’s striking architecture and design.
The Strand Melbourne has recruited Melbourne street style fashion blogger and photographer, Jasmin Howell of Friend in Fashion, to help spread the word about the competition.
“I’ve built a career on capturing photos of the things I love and lust after, so it’s hugely exciting to be part of a creative campaign that asks fellow Melburnians to do the same,” says Howell. “I’ve been fortunate to travel the world with my blog and I always love coming home to Melbourne; this city is so well known for its appreciation of culture and the arts.”
“The Colours of The Strand Melbourne photography competition is a fantastic opportunity for people to express their creativity and I can’t wait to see the shots.”
Award winning professional photographer Sean Fennessy is also on board to kick-start the showcase, capturing a colourful series of the competition’s prizing with his signature clean, graphic style, which will be on display in-centre throughout the competition period.
Shoppers will be able to see in-centre installations showcasing the competition’s monthly prizes, styled by Melbourne based multi-disciplinary creative, Gloss Creative. The inspiration colour will change each month, kicking off with green in July, yellow in August and finishing with blue in September.
All photos submitted for entry will be housed in a digital gallery on The Strand Melbourne’s website. For more information, visit: www.thestrandmelbourne.com.au for details.
