The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards have finally announced the winners of this year’s edition of the competition!

Among 7,000 hilarious entries from across the globe, Ken Jensen, a keen amateur photographer from Blackburn, was named the overall winner for his amazing photograph of a Golden Silk Monkey entitled ‘Ouch!’

Co-founded in 2015 by professional photographers Paul Joynson, Hicks MBE and Tom Sullam, this competition was created to focus on the lighter side of wildlife photography and help promote wildlife conservation through humour.

The competition also supports wildlife conservation directly, and this year, it will be helping Save Wild Orangutans by donating 10% of its total net revenue to the charity. The initiative safeguards wild orangutans in and around Gunung Palung National Park, Borneo.

A golden silk monkey in Yunnan China – this is actually a show of aggression, but in the position that the monkey is in, it looks quite painful!

Commenting on his win, Ken said: “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.”

VIDEO CATEGORY WINNER

Rahul Lakhmani is the only Indian to be named a winner in this year’s edition of the competition. His video of a White Throated Kingfisher, titled ‘Hugging Best Friend After Lockdown’, was picked as the 2021 Video Category winner.
