Winning Drone Photos From The 2017 Dronestagram Contest




Dronestagram Winners

Dronestagram hosted an aerial drone photography contest with partners from the likes of Kodak and National Geographic. Dronestagram is the Instagram of drone photos and videos, and they have been doing this annual contest since 2014. There were three different categories to choose from: nature, people, and urban. The Dronestagram contest ranked first, second, and third place winners for each of the three categories. With thousands of photos submitted from all over the world, judges from National Geographic and the team at Dronestagram chose these respective photos as the winners of their 2017 International Drone Photography Contest:

Dronestagram Extra Contest Category: Creativity

This category is an added category that did not have ranked winners, and Dronestragram added, “We have decided to create this year a special category, named “Creativity” to reward the amazing creativity of our talented community.” It is unclear if the photographers who shot these photos received a prize, but they definitely deserve the attention for their unique aerial creativity.
