“My choice this week for Editors choice has to be this image of Prince George with his sister Princess Charlotte arriving in Warsaw as their parents Prince William Duke of Cambridge and Catherine Duchess of Cambridge embark on a tour of Poland and Germany. Firstly, the photographer did an amazing job just by spotting these two at the miniscule window as he was stationed a fair distance away from the aircraft and shooting on a huge 500mm lens. Then, there is the siblings expressions, the pair looking out to see what is going on and where they are, Charlotte looking excited and George a little less so. For me, I like the closeness between the two, both squashed at the one window together, perfect!” - John Keeble | London Picture Desk | Pool Photo #EditorsChoice

“Ideally, when looking for the best entertainment pictures of the week I look for something that moves me, has news value, and is shot thoughtfully. We had some standout images from major events this week, but this delicate moment between Faith Hill and Tim McGraw shot by Kevin Winter is my pick. The married couple of twenty years, who met and fell in love on tour, are on tour again for the first time in ten years. Technically, the image works because the country singers are sitting at a microphone mirroring each other perfectly against a pitch black stage. The eye of the viewer naturally focuses on their expressions and their body language because there are no background distractions.” - @chelsea_guglielmino | LA Picture Desk #EditorsChoice

"Typhoon Haiyan ripped through the Island states of Leyte and Samar in the Philippines in November 2013. One of the most powerful typhoons ever to hit land, the 270km/h winds of the category five super typhoon brought a 15-foot-high sea surge destroying almost everything in its path. It left thousands dead and hundreds of thousands homeless. On arriving in Tacloban I immediately realized the gravity of the situation. It was complete and utter carnage. The first challenge was getting airborne and with an hour of daylight left I managed to secure a spot on one of the Philippine Air Force helicopters making an initial aid drop to an Island off Eastern Samar. I was overwhelmed by the scale of the devastation below me. Over the next few days I witnessed devastation on a monumental scale. I realized that trying to make visual sense of the scenes before me was going to be challenging. Bodies were lying in the street and people were scavenging for any possessions they could find amongst the debris, trying desperately to put their lives back together. Initially the situation seemed hopeless, where do you start when you have lost everything, when you can’t even see the ground beneath your feet? As the days passed and I travelled from towns to villages meeting people who had lost loved ones as well as their homes and livelihoods I was struck by their resilience witnessed triumphs of hope over despair. The Filipino people have an amazing ability to adapt in the face of such hardship, it was overwhelming. I was humbled." -

“Keeper Daouda Keita collects the baby group from their enclosure for their first bushwalk at the Chimpanzee Conservation Centre, in Somoria, Guinea back in November, 2015. The CCC is a sanctuary and a rehabilitation centre for rescued orphaned chimpanzees located on the Banks of the River Niger in the Haut Niger National Park in Guinea, West Africa. The CCC currently looks after 50 Western Chimpanzees, one of the most endangered sub species of chimpanzee. Most of the animals were orphaned and subsequently rescued after being taken as babies in the wild from their family groups. According to the ‘Great Apes Survival Partnership’, (GRASP), for every young Chimpanzee rescued, around 10 of its family members will have likely been killed in the process. The centre rehabilitates and cares for the animals, and ultimately aims to release them back into the wild, a process that take over 10 years. The animals often suffer from physical and psychological damage.” @dan_kitwood | November 26, 2015 | #GettyImagesNews [1 of 3]
