To have a superpower in life, you need to be able to make those around you laugh. As a result, it’s practically miraculous when someone can bring a tiny amount of love into your life. To that end, the Comedy Pet Photography Awards have been established to raise money for animal welfare organizations.

A record number of submissions were received for this year’s contest, and the team was able to narrow the field down to 30 winning photographs and videos from over 70 nations across the world.

See some of this year’s finalists’ images by scrolling down the page.
