Welcome to the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards


"Oh No" we hear you crying, its all over red rover for 2023. Well, in a way yes, you can't enter your hilarious images any more, but dont worry, make sure you sign up to our mialing list down below so you can enter them next year for our incredibly exciting 10th Anniversary edition of the competition. Also, you get to see the images soon when we announce our finalists and then later our winners. So actually, it's not the end, its just the beginning of the fun. Stay tuned.

Born from a passion for wildlife, and decades of experience living & working in East Africa, Comedy Wildlife began its life modestly in 2015 as a photographic competition. Since then, steered by its founders, Paul Joynson-Hicks MBE and Tom Sullam, it has grown into a globally renowned competition seen by millions of people every year, with sustainability at its heart and behind all its aims.

The free competition, open to wildlife photography novices, amateurs and professionals, celebrates the hilarity of our natural world and highlights what we need to do to protect it. From a surprised otter to a swearing turtle, Comedy Wildlife’s photographs transcend cultures and ages to bring a smile to everyone’s face.

You can find out more about our competition, our mission and our conservation efforts on our website.

But fret not gang, we are super excited to be lauching our Comedy Wildlife Guided African Safari (yup, i know, catchy title) for October 2024. Not only guided by the legendary Kate Humble, but also our founders Paul Joynson-Hicks, a wildlife Photographer and Tom Sullam who takes pictures of things that dont move...zzzz I jest of course, he is an award-winning landscape photographer so ideally placed for our African adventure. Its a small group of 12 people maximum in three vehicles, so loads of space. Its an adventure.



Closing Date is 27th August 2023, so sorry gang, that actually means we are closed for entries.
