We can see perfectly captured photos due to the skill and the determination of the photographers. In the competition, Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards the photographers submit wildlife photos captured by them, where the animals do something hilarious. The Bored Panda had conducted an interview with the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards Team.
In the interview Co-Founder of the CWPA Tom Sullam had answered the question of what is new this year in the competition. He had said, that they thought there would be fewer submissions as to the ongoing pandemic. But to their amazement, there had been a lot of entries. Due to the ‘In the Air’ Category they had received quite a lot of photographs of birds. He had said that it’s good that people have given importance to wildlife around them.
As he had said usually they get about 7,000-8,000 photographs, and they hope it would be the same this time. As wildlife is all around us they are passionate about protecting them and that’s the biggest thing done by this competition.
The bored panda has asked amongst a large number of submissions each year, which were the teams most liked. To that, they had said among the 2017 winning ones, the one with three owls resting on a branch is liked. In it out of the three owls, one was not resting but trying to hold on to the branch. As they had said it could relate to them too.
Here are some of the greatest submissions.
