Nature can be extremely funny!
“Hilarious” may be the furthest adjective in our minds when we get asked to describe nature. But yes, as you can see on the images below, nature does have a pretty nasty sense of humor!
The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards recently announced the finalists for their annual competition and we’re absolutely loving what we’re seeing. The entries show a wide range of animals from lions and fishes, to bears and birds, and more.
In an exclusive interview, Awards co-founder Tom Sullam shared that they believe humor can play a big role in helping increase interest and awareness in protecting wildlife.
“Over the years, the competition has focused more and more on the conservation, working with the Born Free Foundation and promoting conservation efforts around the world.
“We, without being too preachy, want to get you all, and ourselves, to behave a tiny bit differently towards the world we live in. The smallest effort achieved towards conservation is better than the biggest effort never started!”
Tom and the team were expecting a different turn out compared with the previous years due to the restrictions in place because of COVID-19.
Much to their surprise, however, they “received the highest number of entries ever, over 7,000—and the standard across the board has gone up incredibly,” he enthusiastically said. “It has been such a positive response and such an upbeat process to be part of when so many things in 2020 have been so miserable/depressing/disappointing!”
Needless to say, they had a hard time picking the finalists but after a lot of work, they ended up choosing a total of 4 photos, “which should have been 40 but we just couldn’t reject the other 4,” confessed Tom.
According to their official website, the winners will be announced on October 22 so lets all stay tuned for that.
