With just a month to go before the competition closes for entries, organisers of the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards have released the funniest photos to have entered the contest so far!

Co-founded in 2015 by professional photographers Paul Joynson-Hicks MBE and Tom Sullam, this competition focuses on the lighter side of wildlife photography, while helping promote the conservation of wildlife and habitats through humour.

Furthermore, it highlights a charity working to help champion conservation each year. This time around, it has lent its support to the Whitley Fund For Nature by donating 10% of its total net revenue to the charity.

Now in its eighth year, the free-to-enter Comedy Wildlife Awards has already received thousands of entries from around the world, and the entry will remain open until September 1, 2022.

But while that wait continues, let’s waste no time in checking out the funniest wildlife entries of the year (so far)! Just scroll below to laugh out loud.
