12 Of The Year’s Most Inspiring Moments Captured On Camera

The contest asked people to send photos that "make them feel inspired and optimistic about the world we live in" - and these are the winners.

With all the negativity happening in the world today, it’s always a breath of fresh air whenever we see the exact opposite from time to time. That’s why we love it whenever we hear about heartwarming stories and videos going viral on social media. We all need some positivity in our lives.

Case in point, the photos you’ll see below have been recognized as winners in a contest that asked participants in the UK to submit the most inspiring pictures. A project by the CEWE Photoworld company and mental health charity Mind, the contest My Inspiring Moments aims to inspire people through photography.

Leanne Vennard’s entry was named as the overall winner.

The photo showed her son and her friend touching hands across a table. Leanne shared:

“I went out with a photography friend and my son for the first time and my shy quiet boy took to him straight away.

“My friend took to him too and I was able to get this beautiful shot of them. It’s one of my all-time favorites.”

Here are the 11 other winners from the competition:

According to a Metro report, the 12 winning photos will be featured in a charity calendar which will benefit Mind.

Meanwhile, CEWE Photoworld digital marketing director Clare Moreton pointed out:

“Our research found that while people are taking more photos than at any other time in history, the pressure to post our lives on social media has taken away the joy of photography for photography’s sake.

“The CEWE My Inspiring Moments competition aimed to bring the joy back into photography as an art form, asking people to share the photos that make them feel inspired and optimistic about the world we live in.

“It was a delight to see all the amazing entries we received from people across the country and it was difficult selecting just 12 photos to win out of hundreds of entries.

“We are looking forward to publishing our winners’ photos in our charity calendar and raising much deserved funds for Mind, which does great work in ensuring no one has to face mental health problems alone.”
