Whether they were with a drone, or from a helicopter, kite, balloon, or airplane, aerial photos give an extraordinary view of the world. This is what Aerial Photography Awards wanted to show us. The very first edition of this contest invited photographers from around the world to submit their best aerial photos, and the winners have just been announced.
Even though this is the first edition of the contest, it received thousands of entries from photographers across 65 countries. The jury awarded 106 photos in 22 categories and 11 photographers in the six Master categories:
- Fine art
- Real estate
The Aerial Photographer of the Year 2020 is photographer Sebastien Nagy from Belgium. He was selected to be the overall winner thanks to several awarded photos in different categories and a high average score. Other than the title, Nagy also won a $10,000 award. Interestingly enough, the photographer said that he had never entered a contest before. He decided to give it a shot now – and he won the main award.
