This year, Sarah Skinner won the first prize in the competition with her image of a Lion Cub playing with the tail of a lion in Botswana. The winner hopes that her image "will be able to encourage all those who will see it to take part in the conservation of species, so that future generations benefit".
Since 2015, the contest has been rewarding comical, funny or funny images of animals in the air, on the ground and in the water. From the South Pole to Japan via Botswana, part of the fauna that people inhabit our planet is represented in the competition. In view of the images, it seems that where animals make us laugh the most is when they imitate humans.
