These portfolios always showcase jaw-dropping scenes from the natural world, but I have no idea how the judges did their job this year. The 21st portfolio stands out as an incredible collection, perfectly aranged and balanced between humour and drama, awe-inspiring and 'aww'-inspiring; the standard of photos (almost without exception) absolutely stunning.

The 'wildlife photojournalist of the year award', and the winning 'The Price of Oil' was a smart inclusion, although the series has never shied away from showing the human impact upon our surroundings.

I almost couldn't have picked a personal favourite this year (strong contenders; 'the paper-clip suitor' and 'trust') until I reached 'Tiny warm up', a single baby Qinling golden snub-nosed monkey with his paws tucked into his belly, staring into the camera with an expression designed to make even people who have always respected the seperateness of animals and their reliance on their natural habitats mutter a strangled 'I want one!'
