The John Ruskin Prize was first announced in 2012 and is named after the nineteenth century art critic, John Ruskin. It is awarded each year to an artist (professional or amateur), who has produced a work on the theme of “Recording Britain Now: Fresh, contemporary visions of the UK's urban, rural or social environment.“

On 6th May 2014, the list of the 23 shortlisted artists for the 2014 prize was published, which included Roanna Wells and her hand embroidered work. The piece that was judged took the form of stylised silhouettes of airplanes. The design was inspired by the (RAF) Red Arrows display over Buckingham Palace, London, during the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations in 2012. The prize was eventually awarded to the artist, Maggie Hargreaves.
