There’s nothing better to cheer anyone up, than funny animal photographs.

What if there was a contest for the funniest photos of animals? Well, actually there is such a competition.

Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards was created by two professional photographers who are also conservationists, Paul Joynson-Hicks and Tom Sullam.

While there are also prizes for both category winners and for the overall winner, the main cause of the competition is to raise conservation awareness with the motto “Conservation through competition.” The competition is a delight for everyone looking to celebrate the natural state of wildlife.

Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards is a global and free-to-enter competition for nature lovers who trust their photography skills. This year, there are 40 furry nominees in the competition. 

Here are some of the highlights of 2019 finalists:
