Here Are The Winners Of Dronestagram’s 5th Annual Internatio…

Aerial photography social media platform Dronestagram has today announced the winners of its fifth annual Drone Photography Contest.

The images are once again a testament to the creativity that drones enable and the passion and skill of aerial photographers around the world.

Despite the regulations and constraints that increasingly weigh on recreational drones, creativity has not been curtailed and the unique worldview allowed by drones continues to make us dream.” – Eric Dupin, founder of Dronestagram.

Thoughts from the Dronestagram founder

2018 didn’t end well for the drone industry, with plenty of coverage for all the wrong reasons following the fiasco at Gatwick airport in London. However, it’s nice to be able to give some publicity to Dronestagram’s community, which relentlessly shows the positive potential of drone technology.

”This year we decided to simplify the rules of the contest in order to give the greatest freedom to our community of drone photography enthusiasts. We were not disappointed with the result: thousands of amazing pictures among which it was extremely difficult to make a choice,”  said Eric Dupin, the founder of Dronestagram.

“Despite the regulations and constraints that increasingly weigh on recreational drones, creativity has not been curtailed and the unique worldview allowed by drones continues to make us dream. A big thank you to all the participants, we look forward to the next edition!”
