Finalists of ‘The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards’ Challenge You NOT To Say ‘Aww’ or Smile

‘The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards’ is an online global wildlife photography competition which features hilarious photographs of wildlife species with silly expressions or doing funny things. The competition was started four years ago by two renowned photographers – Tom Sullam and Paul Joynson Hicks.

The idea behind this competition is to capture the raptures of playful and light-hearted photography while promoting wildlife conservation as well. For the past few years, this competition has been widely loved and the world has got to witness some amazing pictures of lively and humorous wildlife through it.
