Welcome to the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards
What can I do to be a Conservationist at home?
We have a great list of things you can do at home to be a conservationist. Read it! Its fun.
We are OPEN for you to enter your incredibly funny wildlife images right now, do it!
We want your funniest images, of the wild, in the wild. We know there is a hint of chance in achieving these images, but as with all photography, its being at the right place, at the right time, with the right gear, and most importantly.... the readiness to hit that shutter release just at the right time. It is FREE to enter, and the prizes are quite incredible - support conservation and WIN an AMAZING SAFARI with Alex Walker's SERIAN in the Maasai Mara, Kenya, as well as wonderful bags from THINK TANK and a brand new Portfolio Website from AMAZING INTERNET, not to mention an ipad from AFFINITY and their incredible software - so have a look at our prizes page for all the info.
What on earth do they mean by "Conservation through Competition"?
The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards, ingeniously titled to avoid any confusion, was the result of two factors: Firstly, a need for a photography competition that was light hearted, upbeat, possibly unpretentious and mainly about wildlife doing funny things. 4years on and these objectives seem to have been met. Secondly, and way more importantly, this competition is about conservation.
None of us are perfect, all of us at some point will fly somewhere, drive somewhere, cook something, burn something and probably provide some direct input into the general warming of the globe. Indirectly, we will also have some impact on the animals that share this planet with us. So the end result?
By entering this competition it gives both Paul and Tom and the rest of you talented photographers a chance to do a little bit for conservation. How? Well… you are now obviously going to go to your office, home, pub, club or wherever and talk about the dire need for us all to be conservationists in our own little way. Also, perhaps you will go to Born Free’s website and have a look at the work they do and spread that word as well.
It’s not a lot necessarily but it is the right step forwards. And one step leads to the next step. With your help and the help of Born Free it’s way more than we could possibly have done without them and without you.
We hope that you feel the same way, keep clicking and keep appreciating the other living things that we live with.
Thanks, to all of you.
