The laughter-inducing, heartwarming Comedy Pets 2024 competition is officially open for entries starting January 1st!

The event, dedicated to showcasing the delightful antics of our beloved pets, invites pet enthusiasts worldwide to submit their most hilarious pet photos or videos. The grand prize includes a £500 cash reward, an exceptional ThinkTANK photographic bag, as well as a bespoke trophy, making it an exciting opportunity for pet owners to spotlight their furry friends’ humorous side.

Celebrating the new year with laughter and the charm of our pets, Comedy Pets aims to honour the positive impact these delightful companions have on our lives. Open to all, the competition seeks to capture the joy and unique moments that make pets so incredibly special. From playful dogs to mischievous cats and other adorable creatures, entrants are encouraged to showcase the funniest, silliest, and most amusing aspects of their pets’ personalities.

Additionally, for budding young photographers, the Junior Category offers an exciting opportunity to participate at no cost for individuals under 16 years old (T&C’s apply). The competition not only spreads cheer but also promotes the wellbeing, both mental and physical, that pets bring into our lives.

A distinguished panel of judges, including TV presenter and conservationist Kate Humble, comedian Mel Giedroyc, accomplished photographer Elke Vogelsang, photography expert Gerrard Gethings, and official competition vet Emma Milne, will evaluate the entries alongside Competition Founders Paul Joynson-Hicks and Tom Sullam.
