Comedy Wildlife Photography shares best entries

The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards 2020 competition is now in its 6th year and runs until 30 June. It was founded by two professional photographers who wanted to create a competition platform focusing on the lighter side of wildlife.

While the photos are all fun and games, the mission of this competition is to promote the conservation of wildlife and their habitats, through humorous and light-hearted imagery and a positive message.

Co-founders Paul Joynson-Hicks MBE and Tom Sullam formed a partnership with the Born Free Foundation to help ensure that this planet’s wildlife is there for the next generation.

There are some amazing prizes to be won – with the top shot winning a once in a lifetime safari in the Maasai Mara in Kenya with Alex Walker’s Serian, a fabulous Z 6 Nikon and a NIKKOR Z DX 50-250mm f/4.5-6.3 VR lens courtesy of Nikon, the brilliant no–subscription professional photo editing software from Affinity Photo, a Camera bag from ThinkTank and the title of 2020 Comedy Wildlife Photographer of the Year

The hilariously funny entries will pass under the discerning eyes of an impressive judging panel, including wildlife TV presenter Kate Humble, actor and comedian Hugh Dennis, wildlife photographer Will Burrard-Lucas, wildlife expert and co-founder of The Born Free Foundation Will Travers OBE, travel editor Oliver Smith, Ashley Hewson – Managing Director of Affinity Photo, Simon Pollock from ThinkTank, Celina Dunlop, the picture editor expert, Andrew Skirrow of Amazing Internet and Bella Lack, a 17-year-old trailblazer for animal conservation.
