In beeld: zo grappig is de dierenwereld

© Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards

We krijgen veel slecht en maar weinig goed nieuws te horen uit de natuur. Reden voor dierenfotograaf Paul Joynson-Hicks om een fotowedstrijd te organiseren waarin de humoristische kanten van de dierenwereld getoond worden: de Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards. Een goed idee, zo blijkt, want voor de eerste editie kwamen 1502 inzendingen uit 52 landen binnen.

Deze 45 foto's haalden de finale. De foto's werden beoordeeld op techniek, creativiteit, humor, dynamiek, maar ook de bijschriften speelden een rol. De drie winnaars worden bekend gemaakt op 12 november. Wilt u nog meer grappige dierenfoto's zien, op de website van de Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards staan er nog veel meer.
