We imagine that the Comedy Wildlife Photography Award judges had an incredibly interesting and amusing afternoon of choosing from around 4,000 hilarious wildlife photos to crown one as the funniest of the bunch. Here’s a selection of the witty finalists sure to make you smile… and, maybe even make your eyes water. Ouch!
From frightened fish and birds that were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time, these finalists sure gave us a chuckle at Glover & Howe HQ! But, we’re not sure that the subject of the winning image was quite so jolly moments after this photograph was captured…

Taken in Botswana by Sara Skinner, the winning entry shows the wonderful moment of a cub and adult lion, er, ‘playing’! Sarah wishes to “encourage everyone, as a collective” to do their best to help conserve wildlife “so that future generations can enjoy them in the same way I have during my career.”
Sarah is exactly right, too. The Comedy Wildlife Photography Award is so much more than just silly photos. Founders Tom Sullam and Paul Joynson-Hicks started the competition to raise awareness about wildlife conservation. They hope the pictures encourage people to shop responsibly, be mindful for their water use, and speak out about environmental matters – of course, whilst making us all giggle!
Here’s a look at some of the finalists.
