Weather Photo Of The Month: December 2018 Winner

As you've probably already noticed, we are running the photo of the month contest. Photographers and weather geeks can submit their weather related pics or video footage to the contest, we publish the pictures in our Instagram, Facebook and Twitter feeds, and you can vote for the winner alongside our 300k+ strong base of fans and followers.

Who won the POTM title in December?

Before we get to the results of December contest, we have to admit that all eleven submissions we received in December were really great and we all enjoyed them here in our headquarters. And lot of people did so when they appeared in their feeds on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

So, if you are one of the eleven authors who entered the contest and you didn't make it to the top, don't worry. Just see your score in the chart below, which represents the number of the people who liked it so much they couldn't help to engage with your photo, to like it, share it with their friends or leave a comment (all of that counts as a vote). Anyway, there's only one photo of the month...

And the winning picture is...

The picture that moved the most hearts in December is the beautiful shot of the shelf cloud seen below. Big congrats to Giuly Merlo (follow him on Twitter and Instagram) who took this beautiful picture in Palermo, Italy. You are the winner of the Windy POTM title for December (expect follow up email from us soon).
