The organisers say this year they are really trying to encourage people to think about what they can do to make a conservation difference on this planet of our.

Co-founded by Paul Joynson-Hicks MBE and Tom Sullam, both professional photographers, they say they wanted to create a photographic competition that focused on the lighter side of wildlife. 

And let’s face it - who can fail to laugh, hoot and giggle at beautiful wildlife doing impossibly funny things.

But most importantly though, the competition’s mission is to promote the conservation of wildlife and their habitats, through humorous and light-hearted imagery and a positive message. Through their partnership with The Born Free Foundation, who are once again the official competition partners, they are helping to ensure that this planet’s wildlife is there for the next generation.
