About the 2017 competition

The Royal Meteorological Society and The Royal Photographic Society are looking for the best photographs from around that world that depict weather in its widest sense.

This could range from weather phenomena such as clouds, lightning, rain, fog and wind through to the impact of weather on man, cities and the natural landscape.

We're looking for stunning images that might be dramatic in what they depict or because of the story they tell about the impact of weather. 

Take a look at the shortlist entrues and enter the public vote for your favourite image.

The winners from both age categories by our selectors, the public vote and the overall Weather Photographer of the Year will be announced in the early autumn
