Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards

The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards is a global, online and free-to-enter photography competition.

Founded by Paul Joynson-Hicks and Tom Sullam, both professional photographers and passionate conservationists, it showcases seriously funny images of the earth’s most amazing wildlife.  

In addition to providing some light-hearted relief, the competition aims to highlight wildlife conservation in an engaging and positive way.

As well as sponsoring a category, Spectrum Photographic is proud to once again be the print sponsor for this year’s awards.

We produced matt C-Type prints mounted to foam board for the exhibition.

Prints of images selected for this year’s final are available to buy here.
