The Comedy Wildlife Photography Award Finalists Are Here (And They're Amazing)

Lions and tigers and bears, Oh my!

The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards are something I look forward to yearly.

The wonderful judges, more about them below, have just announced the top 44 images for 2020 - and they are absolutely brilliant! This year they include a fox in heavy negotiations with a mouse, a seriously smiley fish, a photo-bombing giraffe, and a very poorly p-p-p-penguin!

Paul Joynson-Hicks and Tom Sullam are both professional photographers and passionate conservationists. Paul came up with this contest, and you can usually find him behind his great big lens and, no, he ‘assures us he isn’t compensating for anything. Tom Sullam is the chair of the judges and apparently the competition director. He won the prestigious Fuji Photographer of the Year award, along with the One Vision prize, so apparently he's qualified to judge. The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards is supported by wildlife conservation nonprofit, The Born Free Foundation. The Born Free Foundation is an international wildlife charity that campaigns to "Keep Wildlife in the Wild". It protects wild animals in their natural habitat, campaigns against the keeping of wild animals in captivity, and rescues wild animals in need
