Photography Competition – WeatherPro sponsors “Weather Photographer of the Year 2019”

WeatherPro, the all-new weather app and powerful weather platform, is delighted to sponsor “Weather Photographer of the Year 2019”. In the 4th edition of the global photography competition, the Royal Meteorological Society (RMetS) encourages talented photographers of all ages to submit their most beautiful weather images to be judged on

A dark night sky illuminated by a streaking flash of lightning, a rare double rainbow, or even a house sunken in flood waters. From gentle depictions of nature’s presence to spectacularly devastating effects of a storm, weather photos of any kind will be considered for “Weather Photographer of the Year 2019”, sponsored by WeatherPro.

The Royal Meteorological Society’s (RMetS) photo competition is awarding this prize for the fourth time to talented photographers from all over the world and is open to both amateur and professional photographers. Even the next generation of photographers have an opportunity to submit their work to be recognized as “Young Photographer of the Year 2019”.

The photo contest has started at the end of April on and within a few weeks almost 3,000 images have already been sent in. Weather photos of any kind can be submitted until 30th June and will then be judged by a jury of meteorology and photography experts. There are no categories to consider; the jury decides which photos they like best.

WeatherPro, one of the oldest weather apps on the App Store and Google Play, is sponsoring the photo competition for the first time. “We are looking forward to seeing the contestants’ amazing photos as they show what we are most fascinated about: the weather in all its facets.” Judith Mahro, Marketing & Communications Manager at WeatherPro, said. “We’re thrilled to help ambitious photographers to step outside and catch the perfect shot with WeatherPro’s best-in-class forecasting and weather warnings.”
