Join the World Meteorological Organization photo competition on the 2016 World Meteorological Day theme: “Hotter, drier, wetter. Face the Future.”

The theme has been chosen to illustrate the reality of climate change. As a result of heat-trapping greenhouse gases in our atmosphere, land and sea surface temperatures are rising. The frequency and intensity of extreme events like heatwaves and heavy rainfall is increasing. Without urgent action to cut carbon dioxide emissions, this trend will accelerate.

Winning entries will feature in the 2016 WMO calendar, showcase on the WMO website and Flickr gallery, and feature on the WMO Facebook Timeline. 

Take a striking photo and captures weather extremes like heat, drought, heavy rain, snow and flood. It can also depict how we can prepare for future climate. Let your imagination run wild!

Submission deadline is 29 June 2015. To submit your photo click here
