Many family members commented on how foolish I was to ask for a divorce. Only later did I realise that there were many Saudi women who had had similar experiences’. :

Natural world category, winner: Will Burrard-Lucas ‘To show hyenas in their element, I wanted to photograph them at night,’ Burrard-Lucas says. ‘The stars in Africa are so beautiful that I also wanted to include them in my image. I used a remote-control “BeetleCam” to position my camera on the ground so I could photograph the hyena with the beautiful starry sky behind. This is a single exposure. I lit the hyena with two wireless off-camera flashes and used a long shutter speed to expose the stars’ :
