A new year is on its way, and it is only understandable for people to look back at the things that happened. While some moments are deemed sad, others are worth being proud of. And, oh, let us not forget the funny ones!
Speaking of funny ones, we here at Elite Readers decided it is time to round up the funniest photos of the year. The only catch, however, is that we are about to feature the wildlife. Interestingly, there is an actual competition for this sort of thing. It is even meant to spread awareness about wildlife conservation, and it is called Comedy Wildlife Photography.
Photographer Paul Joynson-Hicks, one of the founders of the competition, was quoted saying:
“It’s been a real success this year, the quality of images has improved substantially and we have had more entries and from more countries.”
Apart from showing you the funny side of these creatures, the competition aims to spread the word about wildlife conservation. And it is somehow doing a marvelous job.
Well, without further ado, here are this year’s winners!
