On initiative of the Spanish Meteorological Society AME, the EMS announced a first European photo competition on meteorological phenomena – Europhotmeteo (EPM) – in 2009. Following the huge interest in 2009 it was agreed to continue the competition.
The competition is managed by an organising committee chaired by the coordinator Fernando Bullón (AME).
We are delighted to announce The Europhotometeo 2020.
To register and upload a photo follow this link.
Registration and submission until: 15 January 2020.
The winning entries are determined by the votes of a jury consisting of the Presidents of all 38 EMS Member Societies. In addition, a prize is announced for the favourite of the public: public voting will be open from 2 to 18 March 2020.
For the full details see the Terms & conditions .
