The Comedy Wildlife Photo Awards have announced their finalists. Among the finalists is a Hungarian photographer, Tímea Ambrus. The final will be decided by a public vote.
The Comedy Wildlife Photo Awards competition was launched in 2015 by Paul Joynson-Hicks and Tom Sullan. Their aim is to highlight the funny side of wildlife and to contribute to the fun. “People need fun and laughter alongside what’s happening in the world, and this year’s finalists provide us with that in spades,” they say in a statement.
This year’s list of 40 includes a wide variety of images, from a flying squirrel to a waving penguin and a peeping bear.
There’s a Hungarian entry in the final, with Tímea Ambrus’ photo “I jump instead of flying” also making it into the top 10. Ambrus achieved this recognition from more than a thousand entries, writes sokszinuvidek.24.hu.
The public can vote until 27 November at this link. The public prize winner will win a cash prize of £ 500, and the jury will also select the winners from a professional panel of judges. The results will be announced in the week starting with 8 December.
