It’s a happy coincidence when animals do something funny and there’s a photographer around to press the shutter button and capture the moment. Such moments are the subject of the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards.
This is an annual photography competition founded by photographers and conservationists Paul Joynson-Hicks and Tom Sullam. The focus of the contest: animals that do funny things.
The competition is primarily funny, but it also has a serious background: the founders also want to draw attention to the importance of nature and species protection.
Therefore, there are also tips for everyday life on this way. For example, consumers are encouraged to shop more responsibly and to use water sparingly.
It’s that time again this year: The 40 finalists of the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards were only recently announced. The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards winners will be honored on November 13th. There are many contenders for the awards – and one is funnier than the other. Would you like a taste?
