Dronestagram, a platform online for everyone interested into aerial videos and photos, partnered again with National Geographic for their Drone Aerial Photography Contest, which runs until the end of June, accepting photos for the themes of this year’s competition.
Showing the beauty of your favourite places is the main theme of the contest, with categories Nature, Places and Dronie. A dronie, if you’re asking, is basically a selfie taken with a drone… On a more serious tone, the contest states in the rules that “entrants must not submit images that involve willful harassment of wildlife, damage to the environment by the photographer, put any individual or animal in danger, or infringe on the rights of any other photographer or person.”
To participate you’ve to create an account on dronestagr.am, upload a photo and select the correct category under “Photo Contest”. Participation is free and the winner of the competition will receive a drone, camera and prints of their photo, along with the publication of the winning photo in National Geographic France magazine and NG’s website. The contest is open to participants from anywhere in the world.
On its website, National Geographic France, mentions, that “we are very happy to join this venture because photography by drone is an exciting new prospect that allows us to discover and capture the world as we have never seen it before, from sweeping views of Weeping Rock in Zion National Park, Utah to breathtaking shots of Crater Lake in Oregon.”
