Seeing the world from above gives you a different perspective on the world. Patterns emerge, nature shines and cities feel colossal and that’s exactly what aerial photography is all about. Not to mention, aerial photography has become immensely popular since the drones have come into existence.
Dronestagram, a social network dedicated to aerial photography, announced the winners of their 4th annual Drone Photography Contest. The competition was organized in partnership with National Geographic and received around 8,000 photo submissions from around the world. Amateur and professional photographers competed in 4 categories — Nature, Urban, People, and Creativity. While Nature, Urban, and People have been the regular categories, Creativity has been introduced as the fourth category by the Dronestagram team in order to reward the creativity of their contestants. The winners get drones, cameras, bags, VR headsets and photo prints as the reward. Also, their works will be published in National Geographic. If you have an eye for details and drone, of course, you’ll have the chance to try next year. Meanwhile, check out the winning photos from each category this year:
