Get your entries in for this year's Australian Weather Calendar competition


If you've got an amazing weather photo the world should see, time is running out to enter it into the Bureau of Meteorology's 2020 Australian Weather Calendar competition.

For 35 years, the Bureau's Australian Weather Calendar has become a much-loved tradition, showcasing our country's best weather images. Winners have had their photos displayed in homes, schools and offices across Australia and more than 80 countries around the world.

Bureau meteorologist Jenny Sturrock said this year judges were on the hunt for 13 captivating and unique images that capture our diverse and at times dramatic weather and natural landscape.

"The 2019 calendar included some stunning meteorological events. We saw photos from all over the country, everything from the wet season in the Northern Territory to ice halo's at Australia's Davis Research Station in Antarctica," Jenny said.

"We love to see photos from every corner of the country and I can't wait to check out some of the winning images."

But time is running out to get those entries in – the competition closes at the end of March.
