The new exhibit of 50 winning photographs was curated by a panel of distinguished judges including renowned photographer and author Anne Geddes. Showcasing the ways children’s hospitals help all children thrive, the online exhibit includes stories behind the photos, allowing viewers to read first-hand accounts from patients, parents, doctors and other health care providers.  

“We’re thrilled that three photographs depicting our patients’ experience at UC Davis Children’s Hospital were selected for this unique exhibit,” said Judie Boehmer, executive director of Patient Care Services at UC Davis Children's Hospital. “While there aren’t that many children’s hospitals in the country, our collective work benefits the lives of all children. The exhibit helps tell that important story.”

The 50 winning photos were chosen from more than 370 images submitted by nearly 60 children’s hospitals. Joining Geddes on the judging panel were Sandy Adams, photo journalist and officer, The Exposure Group; Lily Francesca Alt, photo director, PARENTS magazine; Lori Epstein, photo director, National Geographic Kids Books; and Eric Gapsch, graphic designer, CHA.
