16 Gorgeous Photos From World’s First-Ever Drone Photography Contest

The world of photography is constantly growing and innovating – always finding new ways to get the most interesting shot that provokes the most emotions.

A fantastic way to do that is with drones, formerly known as UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles).

A new organization, Dronestagram, is solely focusing on this type of photography. They’re so honed in on the practice, in fact, that they created the first ever international drone photography contest.

Photographers from around the globe snapped and submitted gorgeous pictures with their own individual titles in hopes of placing first in the awesome new competition. Here are the results (first, second and third prizes featured at the bottom)!
