Weather Photographer of the Year Competition 2018

26 March 2018


Closing date: 5th of June 2018.

AcuuWeather and the Royal Meteorological Society are looking for the best photographs from around the world that depict weather in its widest sense.

This could range from weather phenomena such as clouds, lightning, rain, fog and wind through to the impact of weather on man, cities and the natural landscape.

The selectors will be looking for stunning images that might be dramatic in what they depict or because of the story they tell about the impact of weather. There are two categories for the competition; 17 years and over, and 16 years and under. 1st, 2nd and 3rd place will be awarded in both age categories, as well ‘The Public’s Favourite’ and the overall Weather Photographer of the Year 2018. The winners will be announced in Autumn 2018. In addition to the sponsor AccuWeather, the competition is also supported by Olympus and Epson.

Images will be selected by a panel of meteorologists, photographers and photo editors who will look for work that combines photographic skill with meteorological observation.
