The Media Weather Forecast Award (formerly TV Weather Forecast Award) is presented to individuals to acknowledge best practice in communication of meteorology to the public. The Award is presented annually in form of a trophy.
Broadcasters and digital media weather presenters are invited each year to submit a video clip of a weather forecast, produced during the period given in the announcement, for presentation at the EMS Annual Meeting of the respective year. All those who submit a video clip are eligible for the Media Weather Forecast Award; no regional restriction applies for this award.
The Award is normally presented during the EMS Annual Meeting and the forecast highlighted on the EMS website Best Practice section.
