The Best Drone Photos Of 2017 Have Just Been Announced, And They Will Take Your Breath Away

During the past few years, drones have dramatically changed the landscape of photography. So much so that numerous awards, dedicated specifically to aerial photography have emerged. One of them – probably the most prestigious – is Dronestagram (previously here and here), and it has just announced the winners of its 4th annual International Drone Photography Contest.

“Drones are becoming an increasingly accessible way to get a new perspective on the world,” Eric Dupin, CEO of Dronestagram said. “There literally are no physical limits as to where a shot can take place anymore.”

The competition was judged on creativity and photographic quality by a panel of experts, including some from Dronestagram’s partner National Geographic. Scroll down to enjoy the best of 2017 aerial photography, selected from thousands of entries from around the world.
