The World Meteorological Organization celebrates its 70th anniversary in 2020 and yet another year they were looking for high-quality and artistic photographs of the amazing beauty and power of our weather and our environment.
This year, they needed to illustrate the theme of World Meteorological Day 2020, “Climate and Water.”
“This year has been our biggest success with over 1,100 entries, and we are in awe of some of the amazing images we have received from all around the world.”, say form the WMO.
The shortlist of TOP 75 photos include 11 photos that show motifs from Croatia or are taken by Croatian photographers and you can vote for them on Facebook.
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.
