The Australian Bureau of Meteorology weather calendar competition is open for entries once again, and the organisers are looking for great images.
The Australian Bureau of Bureau of Meteorology is looking for keen amateur weather photographers to submit their best images to its 2015 Weather Calendar photo competition. The bureau’s top-selling calendar annually features some of the most outstanding images of weather from around the country.
The bureau says that if an entrant’s photo is selected as one of the 13 to appear, it will be seen in around 70,000 homes and offices in Australia and across the world. The bureau says it welcomes all photographs depicting the drama and beauty of Australian weather. The judges say they will be looking for photos which capture weather events or landscapes in a unique, spectacular or visually appealing way.
Photos which showcase the rich diversity of Australian weather can range from depictions of the intricate patterns of frost on a leaf to a spectacular lightning shot. Entrants can submit as many photos as they wish and there’s no restriction on the date they were taken. The winners will receive three complimentary calendars and retain all rights associated with their photograph.
The competition closes at 5.00pm AEST on March 31, and the winners will be notified within three months. Send your entry form and photos to: Australian Weather Calendar Competition, Bureau of Meteorology, GPO Box 1289, Melbourne, Victoria, 3001. Entrants are asked to ensure all prints are accompanied by a completed entry form.
