The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards, ingeniously titled to avoid any confusion, was the result of two factors: Firstly, a need for a photography competition that was light hearted, upbeat, possibly unpretentious and mainly about wildlife doing funny things. 4years on and these objectives seem to have been met. Secondly, and way more importantly, this competition is about conservation.

1st Place – Black & White Landscapes Series of the Year 2019
Title: Oman desert
The Sultanate of Oman is one of the driest countries in the world. These may be very harsh conditions, but at the same time it therefore is host to some of the most spectacular deserts in the world. The Empty Quarter and the Wahiba Sands deserts are the best known. Travelling in the desert when you sometimes don´t see any other human being apart from your group (never go alone!) for days on end, leaves you humble if not humiliated in your existence by the grand dunes and shapes that nature unfolds around you. A journey into these landscapes is a meditation.
