James Paton Memorial Prize

The Scottish Centre of the Royal Meteorological Society organises an annual competition for the James Paton Memorial Prize. It is awarded for one or more outstanding photographs or slides of meteorological or atmospheric interest published in Weather during the year. All photographs published in Weather are automatically considered, but the original submissions are also considered.

The competition is open to single or joint entries from amateur or professional meteorologists and photographers. No entry should consist of more than six photographs.

The winning entry must be offered for publication in Weather unless it has already appeared there, but photographs previously published elsewhere are not eligible. The copyright of all entries will be retained by the competitor and the decision of the judges will be final.

The prize will be a medal and certificate and the date of the next competition is advertised in Weather.
