The Comedy Wildlife Photo Awards 2022 has just opened for submissions, and this year's panels of esteemed judges are ready to see your laughter-inducing photos and videos. Last year's competitions featured fantastically funny foxes, photobombing squirrels and a monkey reading a newspaper, so who knows what the 2022 competition might bring. 

Despite being in the midst of a pandemic, last year's competition received a record number of entries. Judges were impressed with the incredibly high standard and genuinely hilarious images that were submitted, so hopes for this year are high. The competition is open to anyone from amateurs to seasoned professionals and It doesn’t matter what you shoot on; it could be a top-of-the-range Canon EOS R5 or even the iPhone 11 Pro, so long as it garners a giggle.
