During the past few years, drones have dramatically changed the landscape of photography. So much so that numerous awards, dedicated specifically to aerial photography have emerged. One of them – probably the most prestigious – is Dronestagram (previously here and here), and it has just announced the winners of its 4th annual International Drone Photography Contest.
“Drones are becoming an increasingly accessible way to get a new perspective on the world,” Eric Dupin, CEO of Dronestagram said. “There literally are no physical limits as to where a shot can take place anymore.”
The competition was judged on creativity and photographic quality by a panel of experts, including some from Dronestagram’s partner National Geographic. Scroll down to enjoy the best of 2017 aerial photography, selected from thousands of entries from around the world.
