With only three weeks away from the election, and Hillary Clinton has already pointed out that the way to get through this is by watching funny cat gifs, so why not take a break from it all with a bit of wildlife?

The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards is exactly what it sounds like: a competition devoted to choosing the funniest wildlife photography of the year. Here's just a sample of the rules:

2. The winner will be the picture, which, in the opinion of the judges, combines the best technical excellence with the most amusing content and caption.

6. You must have taken the picture yourself within the last 99 years. Seriously you wouldn't believe what people try and submit these days.

16. You must think Bohemian Rhapsody one of the greatest pieces of popular music ever written, just kidding.

The finalists from 2016 prove that even during hard times, there's at least a little comedy in our world.
