Mars Petcare Comedy Pet Photo Awards

The Mars Petcare Comedy Pet Photo Awards is still taking submissions through August 31, 2020 for its 2020 competition, but the organizers have already released a few of their favorite images submitted thus far, showcasing humorous photos of pets from around the world.

‘From the founders of the world-famous Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards, Paul Joynson-Hicks and Tom Sullam have created a fun photography competition calling on all pet and animal lovers to submit hilarious images of their funny furry friends for a chance of winning £3,000 and being named the 2020 Mars Petcare Comedy Pet Photographer of the Year,’ reads the press release for the ‘Best Images Entered So Far’ gallery.

In addition to laughter, the competition also aims to raise awareness around homeless pets in the United Kingdom, with 10% of the sponsorship fees and 10% of all entry fees going to the Blue Cross, a ‘UK Pet charity to help with its work rehoming pets and providing veterinary treatment and care.’

If you’re interested in submitting your own images to the competition, you can do so through August 31. Of the submitted images, 40 finalists will be announced on September 28 and the winning image will be announced on November 19th. For £5 you can enter five photos or videos; for £10 you can enter 15 photos or videos. There are multiple categories you can submit your photos into, including Dogs, Cats, The Mighty Horse and more.

You can find out more by visiting the Comedy Pet Photo competition website.
