30+ Hilarious Photos From The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards 2019

The fifth fuction of the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards was held in 2019 with another plentiful of hilarious moments caught in the wild. Standing up to its name, these comical entries by brilliant photographers will certainly put a grin on your face.

Behind the comedic sense, the founders of the photography awards are eager to put forth a much serious message out to the world. Paul Joynson Hicks and Tom Sullam, the founders of the photography awards writes on their website: “Remember, we are all about conservation.

We want you to take up our banner of wildlife conservation, bang the drum, beat the cymbal and make some noise, 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.”

They invited the world to proceed to help by first checking out the projects of Born Free Foundation at www.bornfree.org.uk”.

The judges of the competition faced a much difficulty in narrowing down the best entries down to 40. Nonetheless, they finished their nearly impossible tasks and the results are out. Check out the 40 finalists below and leave your thoughts in the comments!

Tom Sullum, one of the founders, expressed his thoughts about the 2019 competition, “Personally I think this is the best selection of finalists we’ve yet had. The competition is reaching more and more people and we had thousands of entries from approximately 80 countries. We love that this nature photography competition is border free!”

He shared that their primary aim is to promote conservation among as much people as possible. They’ve always complied a list of deeds to make easy conservation initiatives almost everyone can do with a little effort.

One of the tips and tricks listed was to SHOP RESPONSIBLY. And yes, it is super easy. All you have to do is avoid buying products containing palm oil, un-recyclable products, etc. These deeds may seem pretty trivial, but they can make a big difference. For example, palm oil plantations are destroying rainforests and consequently affecting the global weather.

Another of the tips and tricks is to MINIMIZE THE WATER USAGE AT HOME. Did you know that each time you flush the loo, approximately 20ltrs of water go down the drain? Crazy, isn’t it? Take shorter showers, and have longer intervals between each time you water the garden.

The most thrilling one in the list is to BECOME A “WILD” INFLUENCER. First time hearing it? You aren’t alone. So, a “wild” influencer may not really be a super activist, but it is a special contribution of one who cares a lot about the environment.

As a “wild” influencer, you can share what was mentioned above among your family and friends, and promote them on social media. Draw the attention of conservation organizations using email and social media. Use your voice, and don’t be afraid. No matter how little your effort, we could use all the help we can get.

According to Tom, a wider ranger of animals are photographed as the wildlife photographers are a mix of roughly about 30% professional and 70% amateur.

Tom added that it is their solid conviction that “the smallest thing can help conservation”.

“By following Born Free on social media you have made one positive step. By supporting them financially, you make another big step. By sharing our posts, by buying the book, by keeping the conversation going… all these things help raise the issues of wild animal conservation.”
