Welcome to the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards

The 2021 Competition Opens on March 1st

This year, we are very excited to change gear on our conservation goals and move to One Species A Year and this year we are supporting the critically endangered Orang-utan. Read more here.

The Founders have written a very amusing, but important note about this which is very important you read or they will feel upset, so read it! They are sensitive souls.

Welcome to the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards 2021.

It's a Brand New Year for us all to celebrate new beginnings! Yup, let's be honest last year was pretty crappy. Locked down, pandemic and lack of work for many of us. But somehow we made it, there is a vaccine and hope is starting to dribble out, rather like my spaniel at supper time. 

At Comedy Wildlife we are also starting new and fresh things; the most important of which is our new Conservation Strategy. Ok, I know there are those amongst you who would look at us, our website and our general demeanour and think that we may not actually know what those words mean, but.... yes, a grown up told us. So, we have a new strategy. We have loved our partnership with the Born Free Foundation and they have been awesome people to work with and we have been so chuffed to be able to support them over the years. But like all things, we are evolving. (Except perhaps Tom, who is stuck in a pre-Neanderthal era somewhere.) 

We are now going to be supporting One Species A Year. We will find a small, grass roots organisation who is doing their best to help protect the environment and the wildlife and we are going to try and give them as big a global push as we can. So you, my friend, pay attention as I would like to introduce you to the Gunung Palung Orang-utan Conservation Program, yes, we are supporting Orang-utans this year. If you want to know how to pronounce orang-utan then go to our social media and have a listen there. It's not as you would expect!

Please, go to their website sign up and make a difference. 

In the meantime, get your funny wildlife images ready as on March 1st we will launch the all new and wonderful Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards 2021. OK, so, maybe you weren’t able to go on safari to some exotic destination, but lets be honest, one year our winner was a wild hamster from suburban Germany and another year the winner was a squirrel. Grab your cameras, get into the garden, the forest the park and take some funny pictures and you could be the next trophy holder, the next safari goer and the next lucky winner of a camera bag. There's so much to play for!

This comes with the bestest of wishes for a wonderful 2021 from the team here at Comedy Wildlife

Paul, Tom and Michelle (and Rosie and Coco the Spaniels)

P.S. OK, here's a fun thing; if you have read this, which we aren't convinced anyone does, ping us an email to [email protected] guessing which of the team has actually written this and we will put you into a draw to win a camera bag, no seriously, we are that desperate for interaction!!
