The Comedy Pet Photo Awards 2021 are back! Created by Paul Joynson-Hicks and Tom Sullam, the competition started a few years ago in an attempt to celebrate the positive and significant roles pets play in people’s lives. While the pictures they feature reveal the humorous side of pets, the organization aims to increase awareness about animal welfare through them and raise monetary help for animal charities.
The organizers have released some of the best entries of the 2021 edition of the competition recently, though the contest is open for submissions until August 15. This little sneak peek, which includes photobombing dogs, cheeky horses, and chicks watching TV, is sure to put a smile on your face and make you chuckle.
