Seals laughing


The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards are back and they've already received plenty of interesting entries. 

Images submitted so far include a tiny springtail peeking out of the bushes doing its best Pikachu impression and an indri flashing the A-OK sign through the treetops. A photo of a pair of giraffes appearing to give a passing plane a safety check and a frantic owl clutching onto his branch after taking a tumble have also made an appearance in this year's competition.

Photographers Paul Joynson-Hicks MBE and Tom Sullam founded the awards to spotlight wildlife conservation efforts and to inject some humour into the world of wildlife photography.

Sullam said: “Conservation was always at the heart of the competition, along with the fact that people seemed to enjoy images of animals doing entertaining things!

But essentially living in a country that has some of the best wildlife in the world - Tanzania - and seeing how destructive human actions can be on this wildlife, made us want to do our little bit to help.

Raising awareness through photography, getting people involved and using humour as a positive reinforcement of the good things, rather than focusing on the negative imagery that has historically been used - which does have its place in the fight to raise awareness."

The competition closes on 30 September 2017 and entrants can submit up to three images into each category and up to two video clips of no more than 60 seconds into the video clip category.

This year’s head judges are Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards co-founders Paul Joynson-Hicks MBE and Tom Sullam along with wildlife TV presenter Kate Humble, actor and comedian Hugh Dennis, wildlife photographer Will Burrard-Lucas, wildlife expert Will Travers OBE and the Telegraph’s online travel editor Oliver Smith.
