It’s an international contest that is sure to bring a smile to your face.

The organizers of the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards chose 40 photos out of more than 2,000 submissions. There are countless pictures from across the world, including a polar bear cub from northern Manitoba, who appears to be waving to a photographer.

The winner of the award will be chosen by the end of October, according to the organization’s website. You can also check out the winners from the 2015 awards, which have a fair share of hilarious wildlife moments.
