The Royal Meteorological Society (RMetS) and The Royal Photographic Society (RPS) will be launching their third joint photography competition to award Weather Photographer of the Year and Young Weather Photographer of the Year in 2018.

The call for entries will be made to photographers worldwide, professional or amateur, The RMetS and The RPS will be 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.

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.
