JUNE 2011 – Having launched its first ever Beach Tomato awards a month ago, Beach Tomato has announced its final winners. The beach judging panel (including co-founder Tom Marchant, editor Kirsty Hathaway and features editor Katie Mulloy) together with ELLE’s Travel Editor, Sue Ward Davies, showmeyourwardrobe.com founder and photographer, Jackie Dixon and the threegraces.com founder and beauty journalist, Grace Timothy have decided the crème de la crème of beaches around the world, beach fashion and beachside beauty products.
