Slideshow: The hilarious winners of the 2021 Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards

This past September, we covered the finalists for the 2021 Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards competition. Now, the winners have been announced. Over 7,000 images were submitted from around the world. Amateur photographer Ken Jensen was awarded Overall Winner for his image of a golden silk monkey looking like he’s in pain, when he’s really showing aggression.

‘I was absolutely overwhelmed to learn that my entry had won, especially when there were quite a number of wonderful photos entered. The publicity that my image has received over the last few months has been incredible, it is such a great feeling to know that one’s image is making people smile globally as well as helping to support some fantastically worthwhile conservation causes,’ says Jensen of his win.

The competition, which if free to enter, donated 10% of its revenue to the Save Wild Orangutans cause. More information, and a gallery the winning images, can be found on the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards site.
