The competition, now in its sixth year, was founded by Paul Joynson-Hicks and Tom Sullam, both professional photographers, who wanted to create a photographic competition that focused on the lighter side of wildlife.

It’s run in partnership with the Born Free Foundation and aims to promote the conservation of wildlife and their habitats, through humorous and light-hearted imagery and a positive message.

The winner walks off with a safari to the Maasai Mara in Kenya as well as some Nikon camera equipment, software and a camera bag to carry it all.

Among the judges are TV presenter Kate Humble and comedian Hugh Dennis as well as a number of wildlife photography experts.

The deadline for entries is midnight on June 30.
