A photograph of a patient, her sister and a Child Life specialist at Wolfson Children’s Hospital of Jacksonville by Tammy Czigan was selected for inclusion in the biennial Children’s Hospitals Photo Exhibit—the result of a national competition administered by the Children’s Hospital Association (CHA).
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 a photograph depicting our patients’ experience in Wolfson Children’s Hospital was selected for this unique exhibit,” said Michael D. Aubin, Wolfson Children’s Hospital president. “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.”
Czigan’s photo was 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.
