The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards have announced the finalists for 2018, 41 photos were selected from over 2000 entries and the final award will be announced on November 15th 2018. According to Tom Sullum, one of the founders of the awards, “The humour remains as brilliant each year, with new animals that we havent seen represented before being featured.” The overall winner is judged by an expert panel to have a mix of the best technical excellence, together with the most amusing content and caption.
Wildlife photographers Peter and Beverly Pickford traveled over four years to all seven continents to explore the most untouched landscapes on earth. From Antarctica’s Bransfield Strait, where Cape petrels forged on a towering iceberg, to Namibia’s Namib Desert, where an oryx stood among dead trees in a dust storm, the places they visited are some of the most extreme habitats on the planet. This has a limited settlement of people.
