2017 Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards With Some Hilarious Entries

An owl dangling precariously from a branch has scooped the overall prize of this year’s Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards.

Out of the 3,500 entries, Tibor Kercz won the overall prize with his series of images showing an owl losing its footing and trying to claw its way back on to a branch.

Other entrants included a yawning dormouse, a photobombing sea turtle and a rather shocked seal.

Chosen from five categories—On the LandUnder the SeaIn the Air, the Portfolio Category, and one Overall Winner—prizes include a THINK TANK camera bag, a handmade trophy from the people of Tanzania’s Wonder Workshop, a certificate, and (unofficially) the pride of knowing their image will bring a smile to people all over the world.

If you’d like to support the Born Free Foundation, you can buy the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards’ new book full of exclusive, unseen entries—10% of the book’s sales goes to helping their cause. And for those who can’t wait to see more funny animals, you can find other entries via the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards website.

Along with the other prizes, Kercz will also win an all-inclusive Kenyan safari trip, courtesy of Alex Walker’s Serian and Kenya Airways.

Take a look at all the winning photos from the competition.
