Calling for entries from all photographers worldwide, professional or amateur, RMetS is looking for the best images depicting weather in its widest sense. This could range from weather phenomena such as clouds, lightning, rain, fog or snow through to the impact of weather on humans, cities and the natural landscape. The competition calls for stunning images, dramatic in what they depict or because of the story they tell of the impact of weather.
The Royal Meteorological Society (RMetS) in association with AccuWeather have selected the winners for this year’s Weather Photographer of the Year competition. After an extremely competitive year with over 4,000 photographs entered, the winners were finally announced at WeatherLive 2018! Please find the winners below and their categories:
