EMS Media Awards

Exchange on how to improve communication of meteorological and climatological information between developers, users, stake holders and decision makers, and to the general public has been one of the central objectives of the EMS since its foundation in 1999. To highlight outstanding examples and achievements, various EMS Media Awards have been established, focussing on different aspects of communication. Adapting to a changing world the programme has changed over the years and now consists of three awards: Outreach & Communication Award, Journalistic Award, and the new The EMS Communicating Weather & Climate Award.

All three awards are announced annually. The call for submissions in 2024 is open.
