15 Hysterical Photos from the Wildlife Comedy Photography Awards

The annual Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards (CWPA) recognize the most hilarious candid photos of animals in the wild striking flamboyant poses, pulling faces, and seemingly laughing at themselves for how ridiculous they look.

The founders of CWPA, Tom Sullam and Paul Joynson-Hicks, started the competition to raise awareness of wildlife conservation issues in partnership with the Born Free Foundation.

The photo contest remains open until June 30, and there are already some hilarious entries. Here are 15 of the best submissions so far. Captions have been condensed and edited for clarity.

    Great, entertaining photos. The story concerning the bald eagle was especially touching. Wish everyone had this kind of compassion for wildlife and pets.
