The Comedy Pet Photography Awards, a competition based in London but open to amateur photographers worldwide, published the shortlist of finalists for the 2022 edition on Thursday July 21. This fun competition was held for “celebrating the positive role pets play in our lives“, shows all kinds of animals (including horses, rabbits, llamas, geese and others) immortalized by their human friends in funny and often beautiful poses.
The 30 finalist photos for the Comedy Pet Photography Awards were selected from hundreds of photos submitted to the competition from 70 different countries. The judges will have to choose their favorites, who will win different prizes (6 different categories, including one dedicated to cats and one to dogs), but the public is also invited to vote for the first time, until August 22. The winners will be announced on September 13, 2022.
The competition, which prohibits any photo of an animal wearing clothes or headgear, is sponsored by an English pet insurance company (Animal Friends Insurance), which will distribute on this occasion 30,000 pounds ( approximately 35,000 euros) to animal charities, as well as 5000 pounds (5850 euros) that the first winner can donate to the charity of their choice.
Here’s our little personal pick, along with the original captions (all finalist photos are here). And you, what’s your favorite?
