The search for the 2020 Weather and Young Weather Photographer of the Year began earlier this year with a call for the best photographs depicting weather from around the world. Entries ranged from weather phenomena such as clouds, lightning, rain, fog or snow through to the impact of weather on humans, cities and the natural landscape.
More than 7,700 photographs were submitted by over 2,600 photographers, creating a challenging task for the judging panel to shortlist the best images for prizes and to become part of the Weather Photographer of the Year calendar.
