Wildlife Comedy Photography Awards: These are the most beautiful animal photos of 2021 | Instagram HLN

Here are the 2021 Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards winners. Get your laughs rolling, because there are gems again this year.




Photographers Paul Johnson-Hicks and Tom Slam created the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards 2015. Their goal was to create a competition that focused on the light and funny side of wildlife photography in order to advance the preservation of our animal world through humor. Meanwhile, the competition enjoys worldwide recognition.

Each year, thousands of photographers capture one of the awards. This year too, the number of entries was phenomenal. More than 7000 images were submitted from all over the world. It shows how incredibly fun wildlife can be and that we must do everything we can to protect the animal world. The winners can be found below.

The biggest winner of 2021 was Ken Jensen with the picture “Ouch!”. The Monkey (Golden Silk Monkey – Yunnan, China) is actually aggressive, but paired with a seemingly awkward attitude, it makes for a playful image.
