The Royal Meteorological Society (RMetS) is looking for the best photographs from around the world that depict weather in its widest sense. The RMetS Weather Photographer of the Year award aims to encourage and recognize the young generation of weather photographers and is an important element of the competition’s ethos.

From weather phenomena to the impact of weather, we are looking for stunning images that showcase the sometimes dramatic, often fascinating impact and the story of weather. However, this competition will not consider images showing the longer-term impact of weather on the environment, landscapes or people, such as climate change.

  • lightning, tornadoes
  • wind, floods, heatwaves, droughts
