Whether you climb mountains, chase storms, scour coastlines or sit in your back garden capturing the wonder of weather on your camera, the Royal Meteorological Society’s ‘Weather Photographer of the Year 2021’ is the ideal competition for you.
The competition in association with AccuWeather, one of the world’s most known and trusted weather brands worldwide, remains one of the few prestigious global photography contests that is FREE to enter.
As well as the main competition and ‘Young Weather Photographer of the Year’, which aims to encourage and recognise the younger generation of weather photographers (aged 13-17), this year we are thrilled to announce a new ‘Mobile Phone’ category. So, if you have an idea, you no longer need to have all the gear, to join in the fun! Everyone can take part.
Not a day goes by without a conversation about the weather, it impacts so much of our daily lives. It also lends itself fantastically to photography. We are also noticing more of the effects of climate change, and photography is a great way to document what is happening around the world.
A highly respected panel of judges, including meteorologists, photographers and photo editors will look for images that combine photographic skill with meteorological observation and really capture the beauty of weather in all its forms.
Hashtags are actively encouraged (see entry details tab) and shortlisted entries in the main and mobile phone categories will be put to a vote to discover the public’s favourite.
In keeping with government and public health authority instructions, staying safe and preventing further spread during the Coronavirus pandemic is critical to staying healthy, and saving lives, and all instructions must be followed while taking part in the competition.
