‘Say… BEES!’: Truprint Sponsors Comedy Wildlife Awards Exhibition

Monkeys on mopeds, gurning Gorillas and a smiling Sharks are just a few of the silly snaps that’ll be on show at Hannahs’ Comedy Wildlife Awards Exhibition.

Hosted by Hannahs at Seale-Hayne in Devon for the second year in a row, the hilarious Comedy Wildlife Awards exhibition runs from Saturday 13th January until Monday 5th March. Entry to the exhibition is free of charge.

Comedy Wildlife Awards

Funny photographs taken by the Awards’ 40 finalists – which were selected from over 3,500 entries – will be on display for the duration of the exhibition. Organised in association with the Born Free Foundation, the aim of the Awards is to portray the true playfulness of the animal kingdom.

The winners have just been announced and the Comedy Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2017 is Tibor Kercz with his fantastic and hilarious image of a scrambling owl. Winner of the Creatures of the Land category was a very cute dormouse by Andrea Zampatti.

As well as showing the playful side of some of the world’s most-loved species, the Awards also has a more serious agenda: to put a spotlight on wildlife conservation efforts worldwide.

In addition this year, we are planning a week of wildlife-themed activities during February half term – see our website for more details.

Our thanks also go to Truprint, who are kindly supporting the exhibition and who will be offering a limited number of items to purchase – helping raise funds for the Charity and also the Born Free Foundation”.
