Dronestagram’s annual aerial photography contest has just opened. From now until June 30th, pilots and content creators can enter their best work to be in with a chance of winning industry-wide recognition and a range of photography prizes.
Now in its fourth year, Dronestagram’s International Drone Photography Contest is once again being supported by National Geographic. Previous contests have attempted to show the whole world the potential of drone photography, highlighting beautiful images from landscapes to selfies and urban scenes. The unique perspective offered from above has allowed the contest winners to gain plenty of exposure for their work.
This year’s contest is made up of three categories, Nature, Urban and People. Here are a few previous winners to give you an idea of what you could be competing with.
