The competition is organised by the Royal Meteorological Society (RMetS).

Professional and amateur photographers, regardless of their experience or use of the latest photographic equipment or a simple smartphone, are invited to participate in the RMetS’ annual competition, exclusively featuring photos of weather. Weather is consistently on people’s minds because it impacts so much of our daily lives. It also lends itself fantastically to photography.

A highly respected panel of judges, including meteorologists, photographers and photo editors will look for images that combine photographic skill with meteorological observation.

You may submit up to 5 images. There is no date restriction on when photos are taken.
