The competition is a global, online and free to enter photography competition, showcasing seriously funny images of the earth’s most amazing wildlife.
As well as providing some laughs, the competition aims to highlight the extremely important message of wildlife conservation in an engaging and positive way, working with the main competition partner — the Born Free Foundation.
Paul Joynson-Hicks said: “Every year we do this competition, it gets more and more exciting seeing how people visualise the funny sides of wildlife in the wild.
“And each year we see a wider variety of species doing funny things, whether it’s a very naughty penguin or dancing lions, a chillin’ chimp or even bee-eaters having a shouting match — they’re hysterical.”
