Amazing drone photos from DJI’s SkyPixel contest winners

Last year DJI announced a special contest together with SkyPixel and a few days ago they announced the winners. There are some truly amazing photos among the final picks. The Grand Prize, The 2017 SkyPixel Photo of the Year was awarded to the “Above the Polar Bear” photo taken with a Phantom 4 Pro by Florian Ledoux.

Amazing drone photos from around the world

He had this to say about the winning photo:

“Dear future generation, I hope we will still be able to see the Arctic wildlife as we do now. It is threatened as the environment is changing. I was able to witness many scenes of wildlife and I can guarantee you this is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. Incredible and unique shot above a polar bear in Nunavut, Baffin area during wildlife reportage in Nunavut and Greenland.”

Here are the photos from both professionals and enthusiasts in the categories: Landscape, Portrait, Story as well as the Nominated Entries. For more details on individual photos, please go to the SkyPixel site.
