|"Rush Hour” (Winner)|
Tanzania-based wildlife photographer Paul Joynson-Hicks felt that the goofier moments in wildlife photography weren’t getting enough appreciation. So this year, he organized the first annual Comedy Wildlife Awards, a collaboration with Nomad Tanzania, Natural High Safaris, Nikon UK, Kenya Airways and One Vision Imaging. “I always loved my own funny wildlife images and other people did as well, so I thought, what a fun concept to get loads of them together,” he told Gizmodo.
The competition brief was simple: “Seeing the funny side of the majestic creatures we love to photograph and protect.” With 1,502 entries from 52 different countries, you could say it was a smashing success.
“It was a pleasure to judge the inaugural Comedy Wildlife awards,” said British comedian Hugh Dennis. “The finalists should be very proud of themselves, as should the animals they photographed, simply for looking so funny. Sadly there is no way of telling them.”
Without further ado, here are the winners of the 2015 Comedy Wildlife Awards.
