DJI and SkyPixel have kicked off their annual aerial photo and video contest.
Running for two months between December 18 and February 18, the contest aims to be a showcase for the world captured from above.
The competition welcomes submissions from professional photographers, videographers, aerial enthusiasts and content creators around the globe.
The 2018 SkyPixel Aerial Photo & Video Contest consists of two storytelling formats, one in photography and the other in video form.
Organisers say there are no restrictions on the type or brand of aerial equipment, and participants can submit as many photos or videos as they wish.
Commenting on the contest, DJI Europe’s creative director, Ferdinand Wolf, said: “DJI has redefined how a drone should look like and what it can do. The compact size, portability and powerful imaging system of our drones have also made capturing amazing aerial content easier than ever before. Now anyone can take their creativity and inspirations to the skies.”
He added: “We are seeing more and more aerial photographers and content creators sharing their unique perspectives and stories of the world via SkyPixel. With this contest, we hope to encourage more people to learn about aerial technology, and together embrace this new creative way of storytelling.”
Contestants can win a range of prizes, including a Hasselblad X1D-50c camera, DJI Mavic 2 Pro drone and the new Osmo Pocket gimbal.
Additionally, SkyPixel will organize a series of exhibitions at different DJI Flagship Stores in 2019 to showcase the winning pieces.
