DJI and SkyPixel have kicked off their annual SkyPixel Aerial Photo & Video Contest.
Running until Feb. 18, the contest welcomes submissions from photographers, videographers, aerial enthusiasts and content creators globally. The contest consists of two storytelling formats, one for photography and one for videography. There is no restriction on the type or brand of aerial equipment, and participants can submit as many photos or videos as they wish.
Contestants can win a range of prizes, including a Hasselblad X1D-50c camera, DJI Mavic 2 Pro drone and the new Osmo Pocket three-axis stabilized gimbal. In addition, SkyPixel will organize a series of exhibitions at different DJI Flagship Stores in 2019 to showcase the winning pieces. Select work will also be featured and introduced at workshops hosted by winners and professional photographers in conjunction with SkyPixel.
The video contest consists of five categories: nature, city, sport, travel and creative. Video submissions should not be longer than five minutes and must feature at least 30 seconds of aerial footage. The photo contest consists of four categories: nature, architecture, fun and sport.
From these nine categories, SkyPixel and DJI will give away 49 awards, including two grand prizes, and nine first, second and third prizes in each category. There will also be 10 nominated entries that are selected by a panel of judges and 10 by popular vote, measured by which submissions get the most likes during the contest period.
