In total, there have been 40 finalists, ranging from a surprised elephant to a giraffe that apparently eats an airplane. There is also a moaning gorilla and a hare standing at attention. There were more than 3,500 entries for awards from 86 countries. The winners will be announced on December 14. The awards were founded by Tanzanian-based photographers Paul Joynson-Hicks and Tom Sullam. They hope that the awards will highlight the conservation efforts of wildlife, while also bringing joy to photography.
