SkyPixel Announces Aerial Photo Contest in Partnership with DJI

Recently SkyPixel, the world’s largest community of aerial photography enthusiasts and professionals, announced that they’ll be celebrating their two year anniversary by hosting the 2016 SkyPixel Photo Contest. The two year anniversary celebration is timed to join in with DJI’s ten year anniversary, so the contest is also a celebration of all the advances that have been made in aerial photography, which DJI has certainly helped push forward over the last decade.

Here’s a blurb about the contest from SkyPixel’s website, which we found pretty inspirational in thinking about how far we’ve come with sUAS uses and applications:

Through this competition, we aim to show the world why aerial imaging is the next evolution of photographic art, and highlight new talents found on SkyPixel.

Here is the 2015 Grand Prize winner:
