You now have until Wednesday 15 January to send us your artwork for a chance to win great prizes and have your piece of art exhibited at the UK Commemorative Event for Holocaust Memorial Day as well as in a special 10 day exhibition at the A-Side B-Side Gallery in London.

Our art competition Drawing Inspiration offers you the chance to explore the 2014 theme of Journeys through creating an original drawing, painting or a piece of digital art.  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.

If you're an educator, encourage and support your students to enter our arts competition with our new educational arts resource, Art and the Holocaust.  Educate your students about the Holocaust through art. Examine art that was banned & looted by the Nazis, alongside art created as a response to the Holocaust.
