The 13 Funniest Entries From The 2015 Comedy Wildlife Photo Contest.

There's a lot that goes into a professional photoshoot. You need the right lighting, the right model, the right stylist, and so much more. We haven't even gotten started on the equipment.

But sometimes, the best photos are taken au naturel, without the glamour.

Each year, you can enter The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards. The idea behind this contest is 'Conservation Through Competition.' The team is really interested in talent and humor, but also suggests you have a look at Born Free, a foundation focused on educating the public about wildlife and successfully carrying out campaigns to protect endangered species.

Paul Joynson-Hicks, a professional photographer based in Tanzania, founded the site due to his passion for wildlife photography and conservation. Hicks also loves to see funny photos.

Winners are selected based on technical excellence of the photograph as well as the amusement drawn from the content and caption. If you are chosen as a Category Winner, you receive the title as an awarding winning photographer as well as a trophy made by talented folks with disabilities.

The Overall Winner receives the coveted title, a trophy, a one week all expense paid safari trip in Kenya, and a Nikon camera.

Check out the 2015 gallery winners below.

This cheetah dove into the brush head first. These cats are too fast for their own good.
