Try not to laugh at these 30 Comedy Pet Photography award finalists

For those of us who are animal lovers, we all know how hilarious our pets can be… whether intentionally or not.

Enter: the comedy pet photo competition. Created by Paul Joynson-Hicks and Tom Sullam, the contest aims to celebrate the positive and vital role that pets have in our lives – and all those times you catch your pet doing something silly on camera.

This year’s crop of images includes levitating horses, grumpy dogs and mischievous cats.

Voting for the overall winner is now open, so check out our gallery of these adorable pets and then get voting. The winners will be announced on 6 June.
