Best Entries For Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards 2017

This is one of our favourite photography competitions out there. 

Not only are the photos of animals and very well taken but they are hilarious. It’s not just about the comedy though, the founders Paul Joynson-Hicks and Tom Sullam started this move started this as a move to conserve wildlife.

“The last two years have seen some fantastic entries,” they said. “We want to see even more animals represented than before. Go out and photograph, wherever you are… a squirrel could win the competition. We want to raise awareness of conservation of all animals all over the world, so wherever you are, take pictures of those wilder things!”

Take a look at some of our favourite entries this year so far.
