WMO 2022 Calendar Competition

WMO launches its annual photography competition for the WMO 2022 Calendar

COVID-19 pandemic is causing unprecedented upheaval and changing our lives forever. But it also provides an opportunity to reflect on how we can do more to protect the environment and the planet and to grow back better after the economic downturn.

Many people have commented that they were more aware and appreciative of the beauty of our natural surroundings during the lockdown.

WMO are therefore really looking forward to high-quality and artistic photographs, and especially those which illustrate the theme of World Meteorological Day 2022 , “Early Warning and Early Action. Hydrometeorological and Climate Information for Disaster Risk Reduction."

The winning photographs will be chosen based on a combination of social media votes, geographic balance and technical artistic merit judged by our WMO jury (which consists of communications experts, photographers and meteorologists). The jury will make the final decision on the 13 photos for inclusion in the calendar (one for the cover and one for each month). We hope to get photos from every region of the world.
Winning entries will feature in the WMO 2022 online calendar. They will be showcased on the WMO website and social media platforms and feature prominently in our World Meteorological Day 2022 celebrations.
As always, there will be lots of recognition but no financial reward, as per the submission guidelines.
Since it was launched in 2014, the WMO calendar competition has gained in stature and recognition. The United Nations regularly features your photos. Some National Meteorological and Hydrological Services also run their own photo contests and feed these entries to WMO. We look forward to your entries..


All photos must be a minimum size of 4000x3000 pixels.
