The Comedy Wildlife Photo Awards are fast becoming one of our favorite annual events, combining two of the things we hold so dear here at Bored Panda, cute animals and hilarious situations. Now in its fourth year, entries for the 2018 prize are already flooding in so we decided to give you a sneak peek!

Behind the laughter is a serious message from founders of the awards,  Paul Joynson-Hicks and Tom Sullam. “Remember, we are all about conservation,” they write on their website. “We want you to take up our banner of wildlife conservation, bang the drum, beat the cymbal and make some noise, we need to spread the word – wildlife, as we know it,  is in danger, all over the world and we need to do something to help save it. You can start by going and having a look at what the Born Free Foundation are doing at www.bornfree.org.uk

Scroll down to check out what is in store for us this year, as we look forward to the finals. Let us know what you think in the comments, and don't forget to vote for your favorites!

Funny because at Korean karaokes sometimes songs come with mistakes within their lyrics, and Once Upon a December starts with "Dancing bears". ♥
