RASTOKE SUNRISE One of WMO 2019 Calendar competition finalist!


WMO launched its annual competition to select the winning photographs for the WMO 2019 calendar. The theme is The Sun, the Earth and the Weather, reflecting the slogan for World Meteorological Day on 23 March 2019.

WMO asked for photo submissions which reflect the theme – which included solar flares and space weather, solar energy, as well as sunrises and sunsets.  75 photos entered the finals and 13 of them are from Croatia! Among them is stunning photo under the name “Sunrise in village of Rastoke” by Romeo Ibrišević

“WMO has been overwhelmed by the quality and quantity of photographs submitted to our 2019 calendar competition on The Sun, the Earth and the Weather. Nearly 1000 amazing entries from all over the world. We had a hard time selecting finalists and managed to reduce the number to a shortlist (or rather a longlist!) of more than 70. Now we need YOU to vote on your favourite images which will be featured in the WMO calendar. “, they stated.

A WMO jury will make the final selection, based on peoples votes and on artistic flair, imagination and reflecting geographical balance.

Winning entries will feature in the 2019 WMO calendar, showcase on the WMO website, Flickr gallery, Instagram page and be displayed on the WMO Facebook Timeline. There will be lots of recognition but no financial reward!
