We could all laugh, and as always, the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards are a great way to see how funny the animals really are. A look at the 2020 finalists is an incredible sample of wildlife from around the world and a dive into the light and humor these animals possess.

From clumsy elephant calf to greedy puffin, each animal displays its own unique brand of funny. While this lighter aspect of wildlife is not often highlighted, the awards use this lightness to draw much-needed attention to conservation issues. To this end, the awards have cultivated an ongoing relationship with its partner Born Free Foundation, a nonprofit organization that works to enable animals to live with dignity and respect.

Photographers from all over the world have been invited to submit their best photographs for the competition and the competition field has been reduced to 44 images. An expert jury – which includes award founders Paul Joynson-Hicks and Tom Sullam as well as conservationists and wildlife photographers like Will Burrard-Lucas – will now have the difficult task of choosing the winners.

The category and the winners will be announced on October 22 at an online ceremony. The top image will win an amazing one-week safari with Alex Walker’s Serian in Masai Mara, Kenya, as well as a unique handmade trophy from Art Garage in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

Check out a selection of the incredible Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards 2020 finalists.
