Do you love photography that captures dramatic moments of incredible weather and our changing climate?
The Standard Chartered Weather Photographer of the Year competition is designed to encourage amateur and professional photographers to document weather events around the world.
Organised by the UK's Royal Meteorological Society, the competition has three categories – the main award, the mobile photographer award and the young persons’ award (aged 17 and under), and prizes for the winners.
Marisa Drew, Chief Sustainability Officer at Standard Chartered, said: “This partnership between the Royal Meteorological Society and Standard Chartered is designed to encourage amateur and professional photographers alike to capture our changing climate. I am truly excited to see the talent that will surface and hopefully foster action toward protecting our precious planet."
This year’s competition is now closed for entries. The shortlisted images will be announced on 24 August, and the winners will be announced on 5 October.
Climate change is the greatest challenge facing the world today. We’re committed to reaching net zero carbon emissions in our own operations by 2025, and in our financing activity by 2050.
