Sometimes, animals can be really funny. Even the most ferocious lion care act goofy at times and when there’s a camera around, then we can all have some fun. Our idea of fun might not concur with wild animals’ ideas of fun. What is sure, though, is that they also have a playful nature that they might display when they are at their safest time. A wildlife photographer needs to secure that moment for eternity. Still, there’s a whole bunch of luck going on in here and there are not many contests of funniest photos of animals around.  That until two professional photographers who are also conservationists, created the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards.

Even though the competition awards photographers in both categories and overall, the main idea behind this competition is “Conservation through competition”. The conservationist photographers Paul Joynson-Hicks and Tom Sullam are trying to raise conservation awareness by offering a feast and delight for anyone who wants to celebrate the natural state of wildlife. The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards is free to enter for any nature lover who has taken a great wildlife photograph and cares to share it with the whole world. You need the love of the wild, a good camera and some photography skills to nominee your best funny furry-friends-photography.

Now, if you want to delight your eyes with some of the funniest wild animals on the planet, just scroll down for the 2019 nominees. We selected 31 of them, courtesy of the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards and the photographs’ authors. We know you’ll find yourself wondering what those animals are actually thinking of when caught in their funny mood, and that’s why we’ll make it easier for you, by telling you what we think was actually going on in those pictures.
