Present your local weather

The Australian Meteorological & Oceanographic Society (AMOS) is running a national video competition for primary & secondary students called Presenting My Local Weather. Learn about fascinating meteorology and try your hand at weather presenting this August.

Participants will go in the draw to win cash prizes and a year’s subscription to Weatherzone Pro.

Australia experiences a range of weather across its many environments. From the wet and dry seasons of the Top End, to the tropical temperatures of QLD, the frosty mountain peaks of NSW, to the chilly depths of the ancient rainforests of Tasmania—we’ve got it all!

AMOS wants to see students exploring their local weather and climate and this is a unique chance to do just that – and on camera! Learn how to read a weather chart, understand the flow of a weather report and where to find weather information. Get expert tips on how to shoot and edit videos at home, and on location.

The competition is now open until 31 August 2018.
