The wacky and wonderful world of wildlife

I COULD PUKE


The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards could well be the world's funniest photography competition. It has just announced the top images for 2020 - and they are absolutely brilliant. The online competition, founded by professional photographers Paul Joynson-Hicks and Tom Sullam, both passionate conservationists, is a global, free-to-enter contest showcasing funny images of the earth's most amazing wildlife. In addition to providing some light-hearted relief, the competition aims to highlight the important message of wildlife conservation in an engaging and positive way, working with its main partner - the Born Free Foundation. PHOTOS: COMEDY WILDLIFE PHOTO AWARDS 2020
