Pets aren’t just cute and loving. They can be really funny, too! Each year, the Comedy Pet Photography Awards celebrate the funniest pet photos on the planet. And this year’s winners didn’t disappoint.
The overall winning photo is called A Life Changing Event. Michel Zoghzoghi took the photo of his two kittens to show their different personalities. It’s shown at the top of this article.
The Comedy Pet Photography Awards were founded in 2020 by Paul Joynson-Hicks and Tom Sullam. Both Joynson-Hicks and Sullam are photographers who love animals. The contest aims to celebrate the way pets can change our lives in a positive way. Joynson-Hicks and Sullam also want to send a message about the importance of animal welfare.
People who want to enter the contest can select from several categories. They include Dogs, Cats, Horses, and All Other Creatures Great and Small (animals that aren’t dogs, cats, or horses). There’s also a category called Pets Who Look Like Their Owners. And there’s a Junior category for people who are aged 16 or under. The winner of each category receives a certificate.
An overall winner is selected from one of the categories. The prize is 500 pounds (about 635 dollars), a camera bag, and a trophy. Plus, finalists get to see their photos featured on the Comedy Pet Photography Awards website.
