Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards

This may well be the perfect Friday pick-me up: the winners of the first annual Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards have been revealed.

The photographs bring a sense of humour to the beauty of nature, with candid images of an eccentric lemur pulling a Travolta pose and a seal that looks like it’s literally rolling on the floor laughing, all in breathtaking surroundings.

Awards founder Paul Joynson-Hicks explained: “I often enter wildlife photography competitions but I love seeing the funny pictures. Strangely enough, they are harder to come by than you might think.”

Take a look at the images here and let us know your favourites.

Stirling Prize winner revealed

Burntwood School in Wandsworth has won the 2015 RIBA Stirling Prize.

RIBA’s Stirling Prize is one of the UK’s most prestigious architecture awards, with nominees shortlisted from the RIBA National Awards and judged for the best contribution to architecture within that year.

The school, which has won a number of architecture awards this year, is a very modern take on design for education, with bold colours and interesting facades.

Architecture firm Allford Hall Monaghan Morris (AHMM) is behind the winning project, which the judges described as ‘the clear winner of the 2015 RIBA Stirling Prize’.

Other shortlisted buildings include the popular design The Whitworth, which is said to be ‘reminiscent of 1950s Aalto’ and the striking towers of NEO Bankside.
