Hilarious animals have long been neglected by the liberal media, but this year, Paul Joynson-Hicks changed history. Enter the 2015 Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards, a competition founded by Joynson-Hicks to celebrate the silliest photos in the field. And the prize? A 7-day safari through southern Tanzania in East Africa, and a Nikon D750 DSLR with a 24-85mm lens!

“The number and quality of the entries was fantastic,” judge and British comedian Hugh Dennis told Peta Pixel. “The finalists should be very proud of themselves, as should the animals they photographed, simply for looking so funny. Sadly there is no way of telling them.”
