The laughter goes on and on, with the Angelo Sciuli Humorous Photo Challenge. Although slightly different from the regular contest, with the emphasis on fun and silliness, the photographic standard remains high. Named for the contest’s founder and chief instigator, the challenge has been an outstanding hit since the year of it’s inception (2007).

You can view the winning images and more by going to Humorous Results via the drop-down menu at the top of the page. To go directly to images for a specific year, click one of the following:
