Lions, Tigers, and … Oh Boy: The Comedy Wildlife Awards Are Here

Each year, Comedy Wildlife hosts an online photography competition featuring some of the funniest animal encounters in nature.

2020’s Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards is now live, and we are very excited to see the finalists. It’s simple: Photographers capture funny photos and submit them with (even funnier) captions. Then judges vote. The result? A fantastic display of photography skills, sheer luck, “oh no” moments, and hilarious scrolling.

Visit the Comedy Wildlife website to see the full album and cast your vote for the People’s Choice Award.

Comedy Wildlife Finalists

This year’s finalist photos include animals like baboons, otters, lions, penguins, and more. Photographers captured these photos all over the world — from Israel to Virginia to South Africa.
