Dan Price marks Giving Tuesday by putting donation money in the hands of his employees
A few weeks ago, Upworthy shared the hilarious 2021 Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards winners and the winner was a timely photo of a monkey that appears to have injured family jewelry on a hanging wire. (Don’t worry, no monkeys were harmed for the rewards.)
The awards were created six years ago by Tom Sullam and Paul Joynson-Hicks to promote positive awareness of animal welfare issues. The competition was so successful that the duo decided to branch out and create the Comedy Pet Photo Awards, where photographers can submit photos of their furry friends for a prize of £ 2,000 ($ 2,650).
Donations generated by the competition go to Animal Support Angels, an animal welfare charity in the UK
This year’s winner is Zoe Ross for “Whizz Pop,” a photo of her Labrador puppy Pepper who appears to be blowing bubbles.
“We never thought we were going to win, but we entered the contest because we liked the idea of helping a charity just by submitting a funny photo of Pepper,” Ross said in a statement. “She’s a little monkey and very proud of herself, bringing back items from the garden and parading past you until you notice her. He’s the happiest puppy we’ve ever known and completely loved in parts.
Here are the rest of the 2021 Comedy Pet Photo Awards winners.
