Kuntz and Kramer received special recognition as their photos were selected as "top 5" photos, chosen from more than 250 photographs submitted by 56 children's hospitals across the country and internationally. Kuntz placed first in this competition, the second time he has won this honor, and Kramer placed fourth and fifth. This marks the third competition in a row that Kuntz and Kramer have both placed in the top five. Additionally, there are four other images from the duo in the exhibit.

The CHA Photo Exhibit is comprised of 50 poignant and powerful images that portray the everyday heroes in children's hospitals - brave patients, supportive families and compassionate health care providers.

Additionally, the exhibit's presence at the hospital coincides with an international Arts & Health conference hosted by Texas Children's, the Global Alliance for Arts & Health's 2014 Annual International Conference, Enhancing Lives Through Arts & Health: 25th Anniversary Conference & Celebration. This exhibit truly embraces the goal of the conference which aims to bring much needed attention to the transformative impact the arts have on the healing process.

The CHA photo exhibition has been traveling around the country since last year and will be on display June 23-24, 2014, on Capitol Hill in Washington in conjunction with the Association's Speak Now For Kids Family Advocacy Day event.
