The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards has announced this year’s finalists.

Tom Sullam, one of the founders of the Awards, says the competition recognizes great photography in wildlife. He adds that they aim to raise awareness about wildlife conservation through a positive association with the animals.

“We strongly believe humor and positivity have a major role to play building awareness interest, and eventually action towards protecting the animals that live on this planet,” Sullam tells Bored Panda in an interview. “Over the years, the competition has focused more and more on the conservation, working with the Born Free Foundation and promoting conservation efforts around the world.”

Winners of the competition will be announced on October 22.
