On the initiative of the Spanish Meteorological Society AME, the EMS announced the first European photo competition on meteorological phenomena – Europhotometeo (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). The winning entries are determined by the votes of a jury consisting of the Presidents of all EMS Member Societies and the members of the EMS Council.
