The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards are finally accepting submissions for this year’s contest. Everyone who loved last year’s entries is excited about the hilarious and beautiful pictures that are coming this year.
The contest was born when photographers Paul Joynson-Hicks and Tom Sullam saw the need for “a photography competition that was light hearted, upbeat, possibly unpretentious and mainly about wildlife doing funny things.”
The contest also hopes to bring awareness to the conservation efforts of The Born Free Foundation. The foundation is “devoted to wild animal welfare and compassionate conservation, working to save animal lives, stop suffering, rescue individuals and protect rare species.”
While we wait for the winners of this year’s contest, here are some of the submissions that we love so far, complete with the hilarious captions provided by the photographers themselves.
1. This adorable picture was titled “Help!!!” It was taken in Opusztaszer, Hungary. Who knew owls had such a great comedic timing?
2. Titled “Must Have Three-putted,” this picture was taken at a golf course in San Jose, California. If anything, it proves that our stereotype of foxes being cheeky and mischievous comes from a place of truth.
3. Captioned “WTF?!”, this adorable interaction between two elephant seals is a reminder that they’re truly the ocean’s puppies. What’s the one on the right even doing?
4. Titled “Stopped By A Toll Collector,” this picture was taken in Queensland, Australia. It’s either a sinister owl up to no good, or it’s about to urge you to follow it into the woods for a secret magical meeting. Only one way to find out.
