Readers' lives: This month: The beach
Saturday 21 August 1999
Each month we set readers a photographic assignment and offer them the chance to have their picture published on this page. The brief for August is "The beach". Please send your photographs (preferably in print form, with your name and daytime telephone number on the back) to Readers' Lives, The Independent Magazine, One Canada Square, Canary Wharf, London E14 5DL. The winning entries will be showcased throughout the month. Winners will receive a bottle of either Champagne or olive oil (please state preference). Photographs cannot be returned.
This week's winner
This photograph was taken by university lecturer Andrew Mills at Perranporth, Cornwall. "I was there on holiday last year," he says. "I take a lot of photographs of the coastline, and this image struck me as very relaxed, with a nice composition - it could almost have been a scene from an Australian beach."
The theme for next month is "The journey". Please see "Your Assignment", left, for details of how to enter.
