Each year to promote wildlife conservation, the folks behind The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards select the funniest photos of animals doing goofy things from hundreds of entries from around the world.
“In just three years this competition has gone from hilarious to utterly ridiculous humour – all provided to us by these fantastic animals,” co-founder of the award Tom Sullam said.
Sullam started the awards with Paul Joynson-Hicks in 2015. Both are wildlife photographers and enthusiasts and this competition works alongside and helps highlight the Born Free Foundation, whose goal is to help protect the wildlife of our planet.
Out of thousands of images, the judging panels selected 41 final pictures that capture funny expressions, comedic compositions, and the most peculiar interactions between animals in the wild.
The winners will be announced at a ceremony on November 15, 2018.
