Now in its fifth year, The Royal Meteorological Society (RMetS) Weather Photographer of the Year competition 2020 in association with AccuWeather provides a platform for the world’s very best weather photography, depicting weather in its widest sense.

The weather in its many forms can make for some of the most stunning photography. With a constantly changing subject, you may be in the right place at the right time to capture a dream shot or have put a lot of preparation and patience into ensuring the perfect photo. Throughout the competition we aim to provide you with some weather photography tips and some useful resources from experienced weather photographers. We will also introduce you to previous winners of the competition with insight into their experience taking part.

Entries have now closed and the shortlist for the main competition has been announced!

You have until 25 September to vote for your favourite image at All winners will be announced at our WeatherLive event on Saturday 17 October.
