Finalists For 2020 Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards Have Been Announced

The finalists of the 2020 Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards have been announced - and choosing a winner is surely gonna be nigh on possible.

Entries have been whittled down to 44 fantastic photos, with a rebellious kingfisher, a smug elephant seal and a fed-up gorilla.

There's also this fella, who is absolutely fantastic:

The global competition was founded by Paul Joynson-Hicks and Tom Sullam, both professional photographers and passionate conservationists, and is free to enter - though clearly if you've just snapped your cat doing something daft you're too later for this year.

In addition to providing some light-hearted relief, the competition aims to raise awareness of wildlife conservation in an engaging and positive way, working alongside main competition partner, The Born Free Foundation.

Don't worry, though, if you reckon you know better than all of the above - there is also a People's Choice Award, and you can cast your vote here.

Which pic will you choose?

The category winners and overall winners will be announced on 22 October with the top image winning a one-week safari in the Masai Mara, Kenya, as well as a unique handmade trophy from the Art Garage in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.
