Nature at its funniest, the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards 2018
The cheerful and funny side of the natural and animal world in the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards 2018. All finalists’ shots.
The beauty of nature, which is often portrayed and conceived as a majestic and impetuous force, also hides a milder side, represented by the unexpected and funny actions of its inhabitants – wildlife. Nature photographers sometimes manage to seize the perfect instant, capturing everyday life scenes in the natural world that, in the end, just make us smile.
The finalists of the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards 2018
This is how we can enjoy pictures portraying two deer that seem to dance together, two Komodo dragons that seem to hug each other, and bear cubs hiding from their mum. These are only a few protagonists of the finalists of the photo contest that shows us the funniest side of nature every year, the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards. Now in its fifth edition, the competition aims to showcase the animal and natural world in a light and cheerful way to remind us the most important thing: conservation. “We want you to take up our banner of wildlife conservation, bang the drum, beat the cymbal and make some noise,” write the two competition founders, Tom Sullam and Paul Joynson-Hicks. “We need to spread the word – wildlife, as we know it, is in danger, all over the world and we need to do something to help save it”.
The winners of the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards 2018 will be announced on 15 November. As of 4 October, the photographic book of the competition will be available online. The revenues will support the international organisation for the protection of wildlife, the Born Free Foundation.
