SkyPixel and DJI have launched their annual aerial photography contest, running Oct. 26-Dec. 30.
Entrants will choose between the categories of “beauty,” encompassing natural landscape and urban architecture, and “360-degree aerial panorama,” showcasing 360-degree views from above, aided by virtual reality. Photos can be taken with any aerial equipment. A final category, “drones in use,” features photos – taken from any device – of drones in flight.
This year’s grand prize will be a DJI Mystery Box, a DJI Mavic Pro, Epson Moverio BT-300 smart glasses and Epson SureColor P400 Wide Format Photo Printer, and a one-year Adobe Creative Cloud Photography membership. Other prizes include the DJI Osmo+ and DJI Osmo Mobile.
SkyPixel will also award a prize to the 10 most popular photographs at the end of the submission period. Winners will receive a copy of “Above the World: Earth Through a Drone’s Eye,” a book from DJI celebrating its 10-year anniversary and drawing from photos submitted to SkyPixel; an Insta360 Nano; and a Ctrip coupon worth $290.
This year’s contest is sponsored by DJI, Epson, Adobe and Insta360 and is in partnership with Fstoppers. The winners will be announced Jan. 20, 2017. More information can be found here.
