While the 2017 Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards (here you can see 2016 and 2015) are still accepting entries, and the judges are warming up, we can already take a look at some hilarious submissions of the contest.
Despite the funny approach, these awards are not just about the amusement. Their founders, photographers Paul Joynson-Hicks and Tom Sullam, also aimed to spotlight wildlife conservation efforts.
As they noted:
“The last two years have seen some fantastic entries. We want to see even more animals represented than before. Go out and photograph, wherever you are… a squirrel could win the competition. We want to raise awareness of conservation of all animals all over the world, so wherever you are, take pictures of those wilder things!”
Take a look at the funny collection below and don’t forget to vote for your favorite.
