The Comedy Pets Photography Awards competition is held to get pet-lovers across the world capturing funny moments with their pets. It was started by Tom Sullam and Paul Joynson-Hicks, the founders of the world-famous Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards. Meanwhile, the official partner and the sponsor of the competition is Mars Petcare.
It’s undeniable that pets truly make the world a better place. That’s why more and more people love pets and consider them members of family. The competition, now in its second year, is a wonderful way of celebrating the positive effect that pets have on our lives as well as raising awareness around homeless pets in the UK.
For this second year of the photography competition, there were more than 2,000 entries from 81 countries. After a heated battle, the competition has announced 40 finalists who will compete for the “Comedy Pet Photographer 2020” title and £3,000 cash prize.
“At a time when most of the nation was spending more time with their pets than ever, the competition saw pet lovers across the world capturing the funniest moments with their much-loved pets. With over 2000 entries from 81 different countries and everything from lovable llamas, cute cats and gorgeous guinea pigs being photographed, it’s clear that pet lovers have enjoyed spending more time with their much-loved pets,” says the competition organisers.
