Last month, the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards gave us a little preview of its 2020 finalists. And now, the winners are finally here. They gave me all the giggles I needed today, and I’m sure they’ll make your day as well.
The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards competition has never failed to make me laugh with its selection of comical photos of animals. And this year’s gallery is no exception. The contest has announced its 2020 finalists and they caused me to laugh out loud, and I’m sharing them hoping to get you to laugh, too.
The funniest photography competition in the world, and one of my personal favorite ones, is open for entries. The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards has brought us plenty of giggles over the past few years. From now until late May you can be a part of it, and we bring you some previously unseen hilarious photos if you need some inspiration. Or if you just need some laughs.
Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards never fails to put a smile on my face. The overall winner has just been announced, and although it certainly made me giggle, the winning photo also carries an important message. And I think many of you need to hear it today.
Taking selfies is so easy even a monkey could do it. But would you ever think a plant could take a selfie? Well, sort of. The scientists at ZSL London Zoo have developed the world’s first plant-powered camera system. It uses the energy from a fern named Pete which powers the camera – so the plant can take its own photo.
The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards brings funny photos and wildlife photography together, which means: it brings you lots of photos of funny animals. How can it be better than that? The 2019 competition is still on the run, but the team has shared some of the best entries so far with DIYP. Check them out below and have a good laugh just like we did.
When we go out to shoot, whether it’s for ourselves or on assignment, we’re often surprised. Usually, it’s in a good way. Sometimes, though, not so much. This photograph is what photographer Troy Moth describes as the most heartbreaking image he’s ever made.
Troy tells DIYP that while on assignment in Northern Ontario, an assignment completely unrelated to bears, he was being taken on a tour of the local area. A friend suggested that there might be some bears at the landfill, so off they went to have a look. He didn’t think much of it along the way there, however, he was not prepared for what he saw.
The ideas of conservation, living “green”, fighting pollution and global warming have been at the front of everybody’s mind in recent years. Well, almost everybody. It’s gotten to the point, though, where many have become numb to the relentless commercials and posters telling us to recycle and do this and that for the planet’s benefit.
Photography Ben Von Wong wants to keep bringing these issues back into the public’s conscious through amazing photography. This time around, he’s used 10,000 plastic bottles to create an ocean home for a beautiful mermaid. As usual, this was an idea in Ben’s head that came together with the help of a lot of volunteers and assistance.
If you’re looking for your weekly dose of inspiration, we have it for you.
This time, it comes in the form of a TED video wherein conservation photographer Thomas Paschak shares his story of what it is that drives him to capture the work he does and how he hopes to make a difference through the images he captures.[Read More…]
Looking to learn more about the mysterious lives of Australia’s saltwater crocodiles, National Geographic’s Young Explorer Trevor Frost set out to capture unique footage of the world’s biggest crocodiles.
His tools: toy remote-controlled boats, foam blocks, duct tape and a handful of GoPro cameras.
His goal: get the “salties” to take a shot at the unusual prey.
The results: National Geographic worthy point-of-view footage of how the crocs bite their prey.
