Description

The Royal Meteorological Society is the Professional and Learned Society for Weather and Climate. The Society serves not only those in academia and professional meteorologists, but also those whose work is affected in some way or other by the weather or climate, or simply have a general interest in the weather. The Royal Meteorological Society (RMetS) is looking for the best photographs from around the world that depict weather in its widest sense. From weather phenomena to the impact of weather, they are looking for stunning images that showcase the sometimes dramatic, often fascinating impact and a story of weather.

Eligibility

For the Royal Meteorological Society’s Weather Photographer of the Year they are looking for images that capture the beauty, power, occasional absurdity and fragility in the face of human activity. This could include:

  • clouds;
  • precipitation such as rain, snow or hail;
  • frost or ice;
  • fog;
  • optical phenomena such as rainbows, fogbows, halos, sundogs etc;
  • lightning;
  • tornadoes.

Images can also capture the impact of weather on people and our surroundings, such as:

  • wind;
  • floods;
  • heatwaves;
  • droughts.

They would encourage entries which show the milky way and the Aurora Borealis to also include some weather phenomena as on their own they are not weather related and there are other competitions which deal with astronomical subjects.
