The powerful photograph illuminates the way that the isolation of lockdown exacerbated Prescod's depression as she spent much of her time alone in the "concentrated chaos" of her bedroom.
"It's where I work a full-time job, eat, sleep, catch up with friends and most importantly cry," Prescod says, pointing out that knitting allowed her to put "everything else on pause" for a while.
Prescod receives a £10,000 prize for her photograph – as does visual storyteller Yoppy Pieter. "Trans Woman: Between Colour and Voice", Pieters' photo series chronicling how the pandemic made life harder for trans women in Indonesia, triumphed in the Fighting Infections (series) category.
More than 10,000 images from all over the world were submitted for the Wellcome Photography Prize 2021. Check out a selection of winning photographs in this slideshow.

Global gas prices are at "extreme levels" due to low inventories and strong demand in Europe and China, and the market is set for a reasonably bullish five-year outlook, said Russell Hardy, chief executive officer of Vitol. Extreme cold weather last winter thinned natural gas stocks in the West and inventories have failed to be rebuilt in time, resulting in record prices near $26 per million British thermal units (mmBtu). "The low inventories have not been replenished in the way we like ... the prices are at extreme levels that are way in excess of the cost for the supply chains to manage to manufacture fertilizer and other chemicals," said Hardy.

There are no moral victories in the eyes of the Miami Dolphins. Despite rallying from 11 points down in the fourth quarter to force overtime, the Dolphins feel they let some plays get away from them in a 31-28 loss against the Las Vegas Raiders at Allegiant Stadium on Sunday. “I thought they fought hard and gave great effort,” Dolphins coach Brian Flores said.
DENVER (AP) — The scratch on Zach Wilson's left hand — the one he got from taking yet another hit — was no big deal, he maintained. It will quickly mend. Same with a bruised ego after another frustrating performance. The New York Jets rookie quarterback knows these lumps and hits just come with the territory as he learns the ropes in the NFL.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — After two narrow losses to start the season, Kirk Cousins and the Minnesota Vikings found a foolproof way to avoid the type of harrowing finish that has haunted them more often than not. They put this game away ahead of time — against Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks, no less. “It's a razor's edge,” Cousins said. “You're living it both ways.” Cousins threw three touchdown passes before halftime and guided three clock-draining field goal drives after that, as the Vikings
