SkyPixel Aerial Photo Contest

DJI is the organizer of the SkyPixel Photo Contest.  In 2015, photograph submissions were open from October 26th until December 26th. While this year,the contest is accepting entries between now and Dec. 30, 2016, and submissions can be sent to either “enthusiast” or “professional” groups.The result will be published on 20 January 2017.

2015 had 10 awesome prizes in total. You would expect the 2016 Skypixel to have even better prizes which will include a DJI Mavic Pro, Epson Moverio BT-300 smart glasses and an Adobe Creative Cloud Photography membership. In 2015 the grand prize was;

DJI Inspire 1, Adobe Creative Cloud (One-Year Subscription),  Osmo Handheld Gimbal / Camera and the Zeiss VR ONE (Total Value: USD 9,725).

Perhaps, this year the prize could be an even better Inspire 1 or maybe the new Inspire 2.

Now, this competition is open to 2 groups – Professionals and Enthusiasts. There are also 3 categories – Beauty, Drone In Use and Unique Dronies.

Being part of this contest will help raise your aerial photography skills up another notch.  Skypixel is a terrific community to belong to and the prizes in this photo contest are really fantastic.
