The competition was co-founded by Paul Joynson-Hicks MBE and Tom Sullam, both professional photographers, who wanted to create a photographic competition that focused on the lighter side of wildlife, and to promote the conservation of wildlife and their habitats, through humorous and light-hearted imagery and a positive message. The competition is run in partnership with the The Born Free Foundation
The hilariously funny entries will pass under the discerning eyes of an impressive judging panel, including wildlife TV presenter Kate Humble, comedian Hugh Dennis, wildlife photographer Will Burrard-Lucas, and Born Free Foundation co-founder Will Travers OBE
