At last we can reveal the Winners and Highly Commended of this year's competition.  Tip top of the class goes to...drum roll please...

Jennifer Hadley 

'Not so cat-like reflexes'

for her excellent capture of a young lion cub learning - the hard way - how to come down a tree.  Jennifer said 'he nimbly dropped to the ground, then scampered off with his siblings!'  Typical.  

Huge, HUGE Congratulations to Jennifer, not least because she also scooped the Affinity Photo 2 People's Choice Award with 'Talk to the Fin.'  Amazing! She wins a fabulous Kenyan Safari courtesy of Alex Walker's Serian, as well as a handmade Trophy and a Think Tank Camera Bag.  All our other Excellent and deserving Category Winners and Highly Commended Winners can be seen in the Winners Gallery, so if you fancy a laugh with your croissant, just click the link above.   An incredibly varied selection of images this year that kept the judges busy and kept us all guessing right to the end.  We, at Comedy Wildlife are absolutely thrilled to share them with you and honoured to be able to add them to the collection of already hilarious and awesome images that have been entered over the years.  Hats off to all of you that entered!!  You made the competition the best yet and we can't wait to see you next year!    

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.
