This competition has now ended.

Love animals? We do too! We know what pets bring to our lives, they are the gifts that keep on giving, from comfort and companionship to mayhem and mischief. But it’s the joy and laughter they provide that makes them so very special. March 4th 2022 sees the launch of the Animal Friends Comedy Pet Photo Awards, the fun pet photo and video competition aimed to celebrate these magical moments we share with our furry family members.

What is Comedy Pet Photography Awards?

The Animal Friends Comedy Pet Photography Awards calls on all pet and animal lovers to pick up a camera or phone and capture those hilarious moments of their funny furry friends either in a photo or a video clip.

There are multiple categories to enter to help us work through all the wonderful competition entries, with a winner selected for each category and an overall winner taking home a £2,000 prize, crowned Animal Friends Comedy Pet Photographer 2022 and given the chance to help choose a pet charity to receive a £5,000 donation on their behalf.

Not only that, for the very first time, this year’s awards will also see a £1,000 cash prize given to the Video Category winner! 

Why we wanted to be involved (again!)

We are always looking for new ways to celebrate our pets and after all the fun we had being part of last year’s awards, we knew we had to get involved again and help do even more to encourage the photographers, videographers and animal supporters of tomorrow while giving back to some phenomenal animal charities!

Working with three terrific charities

This year, Animal Friends will be donating a total of £35,000, with three separate charities each receiving £10,000 to help with the vital work they do.

Wild at Heart Foundation

Wild at Heart Foundation works to end the suffering of dogs around the world, providing a thanks to all they give us as companions. They believe that each and every rescue dog deserves the chance to live a healthy, happy life, free from the threat of pain, suffering, cruelty or neglect.

London Inner City Kitties

London Inner City Kitties is a small, volunteer run, no kill cat charity that rescues cats and kittens in London, working towards a city where all cats live in a loving home just like they deserve.

Dean Farm Trust

Dean Farm Trust rescues animals including ponies, donkeys, pigs, sheep and ex-battery hens and provide them with a home for life. The charity works towards a vision where all humans and animals are entitled to live a life free from suffering.

And not to forget the £5,000 donation that will be made on behalf of the Overall Photo winner, giving entrants the chance to connect with incredible charities just like these and help make a difference for animals everywhere.
