On the occasion of SkyPixel’s one year anniversary, we’re celebrating our community’s incredible creativity with the 2015 SkyPixel Photo Contest. With this competition, we aim to show the world why aerial imaging is the next evolution of photographic art, and highlight new talent with our platform.

As the world’s largest contest dedicated to aerial photography, the 2015 SkyPixel Photo Contest gives participants the chance to have their work elevated to the next level and seen by hundreds of thousands of people around the world. Adding to this, we’ve got incredible prizes from sponsors like Adobe and Zeiss,
