About the Competition

Now in its ninth year, Standard Chartered Weather Photographer of the Year showcases the world's most striking weather and climate photographs and provides an international platform to raise awareness about the environmental issues putting our planet at risk. This annual competition is open to photographers of all ages and abilities, including professionals and amateurs, and is free to enter. The 2024 competition will open for entries on 15 April.

Climate change is one of the greatest challenges facing the world today, and its impact on the environment and human health significantly affects sustainable economic growth and the future of society. The competition, hosted by the Royal Meteorological Society, provides an ongoing commentary on the fragility and beauty of the planet. You can also follow the Royal Meteorological Society's Instagram channel: @rmets_ and sign up to our newsletter at the bottom of this page.
