“Two King Penguins (Aptenodytes patagonicus) at Volunteer Point in the Falklands.

The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards was co-founded in 2015 by professional photographers Paul Joynson-Hicks MBE and Tom Sullam who wanted to create a competition that focused on the lighter side of wildlife photography and help promote wildlife conservation through humour.


This year, the competition is supporting Whitley Fund for Nature (WFN) by donating 10% of its total net revenue to the charity. Whitley Fund for Nature (WFN) is a UK fundraising and grant-giving charity, which supports conservation leaders working in their home countries across the Global South. Over 29 years we have channelled £20 million to more than 200 conservationists in 80 countries.
