The World Meteorological Organization celebrates its 70thanniversary in 2020. We, therefore, hope that our annual calendar competition will be bigger and better than ever before.
We are looking for high-quality and artistic photographs of the amazing beauty and power of our weather and our environment. We also welcome photographs which illustrate the theme of World Meteorological Day 2020, “Climate and Water.”
As a U.N. agency, we are keen to encourage a good geographical balance which represents all regions of the Earth.
Winning entries will feature in the printed WMO 2020 calendar. They will be showcased on the WMO website and social media platforms and feature prominently in 70thanniversary celebrations. We will also promote them among other U.N. agencies. There will be lots of recognition but no financial reward!
Since it was launched in 2014, the WMO calendar competition has gained in stature and recognition. The United Nations regularly features our photos. Some national meteorological and hydrological services also run their own photo contests and feed these entries to WMO.
WMO received many outstanding entries for the 2019 calendar and we thank everyone who participated. We really look forward to the competition for the 2020 calendar.
