Prince Harry Leads Judging Panel for WellChild Photography Contest

Prince Harry continues to work with one of his long-time charity partners.

The Duke of Sussex served as Chair of Judges for the photography competition Hopes and Dreams: My Life Through a Lens, held by the U.K. national charity WellChild. He and the panel chose winners among many entries from children around the U.K., illustrating what life is like for young people living with serious health needs and their families.

“The children and families I’ve had the honour of meeting over my years working with WellChild have shown incredible optimism, courage, and resilience,” Prince Harry said. “I wasn’t only proud to participate as a judge in this exhibition—I was deeply moved by each and every photograph, as they capture a moment and say so much about their personal story.”

“Every person who is part of the WellChild family is a true inspiration. Congratulations to all the entries and a special cheer to the winners!” he added.

The first place winner is Ruby Smallman, 13, of Liverpool with her photograph of a young girl standing in front of a large tree, titled “Hope in an Oak.” Second place went to Noah McNeill, 10, of Huddersfield with “Naked,” while Rhea of Croyden, 18, took third with “Creating to Inspire, and Succeeding to Achieve.” Benjamin Morrison, 11, of Portsmouth won fourth with “The Slinky-ing Reading Master’s Joy: Living with severe ASD and now seizure-free.”
