Here Are Some Of The Hilarious Early Entries For The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards


There’s nothing better than seeing animals do things that are just downright stupid. What’s not to love about a squirrel doing the splits or penguins shouting at a seal?

If that’s what you’re after, then we’ve got a treat for you, as the best entries so far in the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards 2018 has just been released.

The awards, founded by Tom Sullam and Paul Joynson-Hicks MBE, aim to use laughter to raise awareness for wildlife conservation. A panel of judges pores through the images to find the best and funniest each year.

Aside from those mentioned above, the early entries also include a squirrel having a good old sigh to itself, a lemur with a shocked face, and one poor photographer’s camera being dragged off by a fox.

Check out some of best images so far below. And note, the competition is still open to entries until June 30, 2018. So if you’re holding on to a hilarious animal photo, you’d better send it over. The winner will receive a one-week safari in Kenya, with prizes also available for runners-up.
