pounds 15,000 IN PRIZES TO BE WON IN THE INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY/FIRST DIRECT AWARDS

The Independent on Sunday and First Direct, the UK's premier 24-hour direct bank, are still accepting entries for one of Europe's most generous photography competitions.

Shown below is last year's winning photograph of children in Madagascar taken by Chris Simpson, on the theme of independence.

HOW TO ENTER

Photographs must have been taken in 1998 or 1999 and must be black and white. Entry is restricted to UK residents - although pictures may have been taken anywhere in the world. Only one print per entry is permitted. (Under-18s should follow the same guidelines as above, but photographs can be any size and entries can also be in colour.)

Prints (10in x 8in minimum and 16in x 12in maximum) must be received by 31 May 1999. Judging will take place in June 1999, and the winners will be announced at a ceremony, and in the Independent on Sunday Review, in July.

On the back of the photograph please label clearly in indelible ink the category for which you are entering the picture as well as your name, age if under 18, address and a telephone number where you can be contacted. Please also indicate which category you are entering under on the reverse of the envelope. If you would like your photograph to be returned to you, please include a stamped addressed envelope and suitable packaging. Neither the Independent on Sunday or First Direct cannot accept any responsibility for material damaged in the post.
