It was said that this time, they got a wide variety of images of different animals. This is one of the most diverse ranges up to date.
You can see a laughing snake, dancing kangaroo, monkeys jamming to the beats, a pied starling perfecting enacting the Monday morning mood, and lots more. “The final 42 images, plus the Portfolio and Video category entries from around the world include a laughing vine snake from India, a trio of strutting Gentoo penguins on the beaches of the Falkland Islands, and a Kangaroo performing a picture-perfect Pavarotti impersonation in Australia,” said the Awards in a statement.

Founded in 2015 by professional photographers Paul Joynson-Hicks MBE and Tom Sullam, Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards aims at bringing people together and promoting wildlife conservation. The founders wanted to do this with humor and laughter. This competition seeks to focus on the brighter and lighter side of wildlife photography.
