The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards 2020 has released some of the competition’s entries to help cheer you up, and they 100% do just that.


The hilarious photography competition is bound to make you smile; from a flamingo strutting its stuff to a lion cub getting sucker-punched to the face by its sibling, it’s just what you need to brighten up these gloomy days.

The competition website explains that the awards want to ‘recognise great photography’ as well as ‘raise the issue of conservation through a humourous, upbeat and positive association’ through the funny animal pictures.

Here’s a few of this year’s hilarious applications so far…

Anyone else imagine these two zebras doing a Peter Griffin-esque laugh here?
