We are delighted to launch the first ever online art competition for Holocaust Memorial Day, inviting people to explore the 2014 theme of Journeys through creating an original drawing, painting or a piece of digital art. The winning artworks will be shown at an exhibition in London and at the UK Commemorative Event for Holocaust Memorial Day on 27 January 2014.

The competition is open to everyone and there are three age categories, each with their own theme and online resources. The winners will receive prizes including a National Art Pass, giving them discounted entry to museums and art galleries across the UK, and a set of deluxe art materials.

The competition shortlist will be judged by Senior Relationship Manager at Arts Council England Sabine Unamun, young artist Gideon Summerfield and Holocaust Memorial Day Trust Outreach Officer Suzanne Wright.
