The 2017 SkyPixel Photo Storytelling Contest continues to welcome entries until December 29, 2017. Participants can submit their photos to three different categories – Landscape, Portrait, and Story (which requires a series of photos taken from the ground and in the air), for a chance to win up to 15K USDworth of prizes. You can enter the contest here.
“The SkyPixel platform has become a gathering place for aerial photographers, creators and artists, to share, to inspire and to provide us with unique perspectives of the world,” said Danny Zheng, DJI’s Vice President of Marketing, “With the new ‘Story’ category, we hope to provide participants more creative freedom and a chance to curate their story. The entries we’ve seen so far have exceeded our expectations and we hope they will also serve as inspirations for others who plan to take part.”
The final winners will be announced on January 31, 2018. This year’s Grand Prize winner will receive prizes worth approximately 15k USD, including a DJI Inspire 2 with Zenmuse X7 DL-S 16mm F2.8 ND ASPH, an iPhone X 256G, a Nikon D850 FX-format Digital SLR Camera Body, a Lowepro Pro Runner RL x450 AW II, a Manfrotto MKBFRC4-BH Befree Carbon Fiber Tripod with Ball Head, and more.
Professional and Enthusiast groups will have a First, Second and Third Prize in each category, with rewards up to 7,000 USD. SkyPixel will also give out a Popular Prize reward to the top ten most liked entries and an additional nine will stand to win Nominated Entries rewards.
