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.

The overall winner of the 2019 competition has been awarded to Sarah Skinner, for her image entitled “Grab life by the …!” From the photo, I believe you can guess what the “…” stands for. : )

OVERALL WINNER and ALEX WALKER’S SERIAN CREATURES ON THE LAND AWARD

I don’t know about you, but in the days when I feel that I can’t be a responsible adult anymore, a message like this is just what I need. Oh, and giggles are welcomed too, and this photo has certainly caused some for me.

The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards is a relatively young contest, but it keeps growing every year. There were 4,000 entries from 68 different countries for the 2019 competition, and Sarah’s image taken in Botswana emerged as a clear winner. She was also awarded the Alex Walker’s Serian Creatures on the Land Award.

Other than the overall winner, the contest also recognizes category winners and highly commended winners. So, here are a few more funny and heartwarming wildlife photos

Just like every year, the contest’s founders want to spread the conservation message. That’s certainly another message we all need to hear and spread around. Here are a few tips all of us can follow and become more responsible towards the environment:

  • Shop responsibly: try to shop locally and avoid buying un-recyclable products and one-use plastics/packaging.
  • Restrict water use at home: have shorter showers, water your garden less and stop flushing the loo every single time. This would save billions of liters of fresh water that could support our environment as well as supply homes and food for a global plethora of wildlife.
  • Become a “wild influencer”: this is a special person who may be not a mega activist, but really, really cares about the environment and wants to do something to help. For more ideas, please go to: comedywildlifephoto.com.

You can see the 2019 finalists here and even more hilarious entries are in this article. And if you just can’t get enough, here are the finalists from 2018, 2017, and 2015. You can also order the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards Vol. 3 book, with over 100 hilarious and wonderful images from the 2019 Awards.

With all this, I think there’s plenty of material to put a smile on your face every day until we see the winners of the 2020 contest. In the meantime, stay strong, take care of yourself, and grab life by the … : )
