Prince Harry Said He Got Very Emotional While Judging This Competition

Ruby Smallman, a 13-year-old from the city of Liverpool, was chosen as the winner of the My Life through a Lens photo competition. Although, Prince Harry did have help deciding on a winner. The duke’s fellow judges included the world-renowned photographer David Yarrow, TV presenters Gaby Roslin and Ed Chamberlin, WellChild Art Auction Curator Chris Westbrook, the owner of Venture Photography Nick Fisher, and Creative Director of Venture Photography, Alicia Hall.

The winner of the competition was awarded a photoshoot experience for their family, a cinematic viewing of their winning photograph, and £1,000 ($1,375) toward a selection of beautifully presented framed photographs chosen by the winner from their photoshoot.

“The talent of the children and families who entered the Hopes and Dreams: My Life through a Lens competition is outstanding, and we thank them all for their contribution, a particular well done to our winners,” the WellChild Chief Executive, Colin Dyer, said in a statement. “The importance of this year’s auction cannot be underestimated. COVID-19 saw WellChild lose 60% of our forecasted income and yet the demand for help from families caring for some of the most vulnerable children and young people in our society sky-rocketed. A huge thanks to all of the artists who have generously donated work for this year’s collection,” he added. 

On June 30, 2021, the Duke of Sussex also met with the 2021 WellChild Award winner and runners-up during a COVID-safe party at London’s Kew Gardens (via Twitter).
