We teamed up with Girlguiding, National Union of Students, Scouts and Union of Jewish Students to launch our first youth photography competition, Light up the darkness.
Expert judges included photographer and director, Rankin, and sculptor and Holocaust survivor, Maurice Blik. We invited young people, aged 14-25, to submit a photo which celebrated the people, groups, places and objects which bring us and others light in times of darkness.
It has been invigorating to see the ingenuity and originality of these young people’s imagery. It should act as a spur to encourage art education in schools.
