The 2023 Comedy Pet Photography Awards are here again, with the 25 finalists recently announced. We have selected our Top 10 favourites, including a ‘pupper’ that is super amazing at playing hide and seek and slightly ‘chonky’ cat that looks like us after a big dinner.
The competition was created by Paul Joynson Hicks and Tom Sullam, both professional photographers, to celebrate the vital role that pets play in our everyday lives along with supporting small grass roots animal welfare charities, thus making life better for the animals we share this planet with.
The contest may feature some amazingly funny photos, but the promoters also want to share a serious message. “Through the Comedy Pets, we want to promote positive awareness of animal welfare issues and celebrate the incredible and valuable contribution that pets can and do have on our lives,” the competition’s creators says on their website.
