We asked young people across the UK to send us photos that finish the sentence ‘One day…’. We received entries from all corners of the country and were blown away by the standard of photography.

Our expert judging panel, which included acclaimed photographer and director Rankin, selected four winners and 21 images to be displayed in our One Day youth photography digital exhibition which launches today.

On being selected as a winner, Eloise Bishop, said:

I visited Auschwitz when I was 16 and the set of keys which are on display is an image that has stuck with me ever since, through everything I’ve done. I am proud to have my photo, that was inspired by this, honoured in this way.

I think competitions like this are important because they encourage young people who wouldn’t normally engage with the Holocaust to get involved in a way that is creative and unique.

The judges were looking for creative and original images, where the photographer had clearly engaged with the HMD 2022 theme, One Day. Judge Mariama Attah, who is the Curator at Open Eye Gallery, said:

The submissions for the HMDT One Day competition were impressive in their empathy, maturity and insight. The photographers showed a real range in their approach, practice and vision, and I think they offered unique perspectives that I was surprised and thrilled by.

All the photographs from the One Day digital exhibition will be displayed at the beginning of the UK Ceremony for HMD 2022. Visit here at 6.45pm to see this display and watch the ceremony.
