STORM PHOTOS OF THE YEAR 2023
The first true storm photography contest! Our purpose in creating Storm Photos of the Year, or what we affectionately call “The Stormys”, is to reward incredible storm photographers around the globe for their hard work every year with a photography contest made specifically for them! From Australia to Italy to Canada to Argentina to the United States and a million other places, storm photographers are capturing astounding images that deserve to be recognized.
The images are yours. Not ours. Our only hope is to use them to promote you, your work and our little contest here. That’s the end of the story. You can read our entire rules and guidelines.
Finally, we are proud of our judges. They know storms. They chase storms. They are photographers themselves. They know what it takes to get the images you are submitting and what makes them special.
We can’t wait to see what you send our way!

COPYRIGHT: The copyright to the images remains the property of the author of the images. USAGE RIGHTS: Any image posted online will be Watermarked with the Storm Photo of the Year logo in the bottom corner and artist name will be credited wherever possible.
Images will be shared on our Instagram channel (@StormPhotoContest), Twitter (@TheStormys), Facebook (@StormPhotosOfTheYear) and our blog/website/YouTube (The critiques) to help promote the contest and the photographer.
Any image we post on social media, such as Instagram or Twitter, will tag/mention the photographer so long as they provided us usernames and also have accounts there. If you provide another link to your work, like an online gallery, website, YouTube, etc., we will endeavor to link to those instead where we can.
The goal of the contest is to not only provide prizes and recognition to the photographer, but also as much publicity as we can for everyone. Therefore the contest results and images may be shared by media outlets when winners are announced and we will ensure that any publications that do write about the contest use only the watermarked images with corresponding artist credit alongside. Since it is a public contest, sharing the results of it online by media would be considered fair use.
