Weather Observations Website (WOW)

UK IT Industry Awards

24 March 2013

Up against the best of both the public and private sector, the Met Office won two awards at the UK IT Industry Awards last year.

Our work on the Met Office Weather Observation Website (WOW) was shortlisted for two of the twenty awards available. Being the only organisation to win two awards was an outstanding achievement.

The Rt Hon Michael Fallon MP, Minister of State for Business and Enterprise, said:

"The Met Office is held in high regard and these two awards are recognition of the great work the Met Office does. Putting accurate, timely and useful data and information in the hands of the public, government and business is now an incredibly important area of focus for the Government and it is great to see the Met Office leading in this field and showing the ability to innovate and collaborate with private sector organisations."
