, , ,

The world is full of amazing moments, and that’s what the first-ever Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards hopes to capture in these hilarious still photos.

The photography competition recently announced their list of winners. The one who took the first prize was Julian Rad with his adorable photo of a hamster going on a sprint. He won a photo safari for one week with wildlife photographer Paul Joynson-Hicks as tour guide. He also won a round-trip ticket from the UK plus a Nikon D750 camera. Imagine what a camera and great timing can bring you.

The second placer took home a Nikon 1 AW1 set. The third placer was awarded a Nikon COOLPIX P900, courtesy of Nikon UK.

A panel of judges sorted through the entries and chose a winner. The judges include Kate Humble (wildlife TV presenter), Tom Sullam (African landscape photographer), Hugh Dennis (comedian), Will Travers (president of Born Free USA and wildlife expert), Will Burrard Lucas (wildlife photographer), Oliver Smith (Telegraph online travel editor), and Paul Joyson-Hicks (Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards Founder).
