Although surveillance cameras are used for, obviously, surveillance, they’ve seen their fair share of weird, funny, and awesome stuff. A surveillance camera at a Texas zoo recently captured something super-strange. So strange, that they asked the public to help them identify the creature in the photo. Can you tell what it is?
The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards is one of the world’s funniest and most adorable contests. There’s not much time left until it closes for submissions, but you can still enter if you’d like to show everyone how funny your pet is.
To encourage you to submit your pet’s photo, the contest team shares with you some of the funniest entries so far. While not all of them can be put on a museum wall, I can promise that they’ll all put a smile on your face.
If you’re a photographer, chances are people have asked you to take photos of them. No, not for the full price of your service, because “you’re too expensive.” Or even better, they want it done “for exposure,” or because you’re friends and “you own that big fancy camera.”
Well, the next time this happens, we have a song for you. It was written and performed by Laura Jane Barnes (Woah Dude) of Simply Crochet, and it’s meant for all artists and creatives selling either their work or their skills.
Nope, it’s not an April Fool’s joke – the 2022 Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards is now open for entries. Considering the nature of the contest, I’d say that the date is totally appropriate, and from today on you can submit your own funny wildlife images.
The lovely folks behind this contest have a great way to inspire you to join them. They shared with DIYP some previously unseen photos from the 2021 contest that will inspire you to either go out shooting or search your archive for some hilarious images. Or if nothing else – they will make your day brighter, and we sure all need this at the end of the workweek.
Are you sitting comfortably? Great! Now, think back 12 years ago. Yes, that would be pre-multiple political upheavals, pre-pandemic and pre-full frame mirrorless cameras. It was a much simpler time, we were all so innocent then…but I digress.
Take a look at this Buffalo Wings commercial from 2010 that hilariously pokes fun at sports photographers using on-camera flash. The results of which, have a disasterous effect on the athletes.
If you’re anything like us at DIYP, you use humor to live through tough times and make them more bearable. Just like the infamous 2020, the year of 2021 was also one of the weirdest and toughest in our lives. But thankfully, we still have our humor. And despite a tough year, we found time to laugh, joke, and of course – write stories that entertain us and you.
As we’re wrapping up 2021, ye wanted to remind you (and ourselves) of some of the funniest stories we reported about over the course of this year. We bring you our choice of top ten stories and hope to put a smile on your face today!
Dogs aren’t called “man’s best friend” for nothing. Only I’d add cats, horses, birds and many other animals to this list. They are the creatures that fill our hearts with love and our day with laughter. And this year Animals Friends Comedy Pet Photography Awards confirms this. The contest has just announced its 2021 winners and if you still don’t have a pet – these photos will make you adopt one.
The day I’ve anxiously awaited has finally come: Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards has announced its winners for 2021. And as always, they didn’t disappoint. This year’s overall winner is a photo of a Golden Silk Monkey I named “The Nutcracker,” I guess you can tell why. But of course, there are other hilarious photos that will make your day, so let’s dive right in and see all of this year’s category winners.
Have you ever tried to take a photo or video only to have someone photobomb you and ruin the moment? This happened to a couple in Australia, but rather than having their annoying friends ruin the shot, it was two seagulls. And instead of ruining it, they actually made it a lot better and completely hilarious.
