13 Comedy Wildlife Photographs of the Year

There’s nothing better to cheer anyone up, than funny animal photographs.

What if there was a contest for the funniest photos of animals? Well, actually there is such a competition.

Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards was created by two professional photographers who are also conservationists, Paul Joynson-Hicks and Tom Sullam.

While there’s no grand prize, the cause of the competition is to raise conservation awareness with the motto “Conservation through competition.” The competition is a delight for everyone looking to celebrate the natural state of wildlife.

Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards is a global and free-to-enter competition for nature lovers who trust their photography skills. This year, there are 40 furry nominees in the competition. 

Here are some of the highlights of 2019 finalists:
