SkyPixel has announced the world’s premier drone photography competition. The 2015 SkyPixel Photo Contest invites both budding and professional aerial photographers to enter a selection of their best work.
The competition is split into two groups, Professional and Enthusiast, each with their own awards for the following categories: Beauty, Unique Dronies, and Drones in Use, aimed at showcasing drones in the air, in addition to an overall Grand Prize.
Photographs must have been captured during 2015. Deadline: December 26, 2015.
The winners will be announced on 7 January 2016.
There are several prizes from DJI on offer, including the Grand Prize worth nearly USD $10,000, which includes a DJI Inspire 1 RAW, DJI’s new handheld camera system, the DJI Osmo, and sponsor prizes including a ZEISS VR ONE headset and a one-year subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud. For each of the three categories, DJI is giving away 3 units of the DJI Inspire 1 with Single Remote and 6 units of the DJI Phantom 3 Professional.
