The best aerial photos from the Drone Photography Contest 2016. Drones have a strange place in our society. On the one hand they’re used as military surveillance, on the other they’re a fun toy bought for spoiled kids who crash it after a week and move on to the next tech trend. Somewhere in between those extremes, drones are quickly becoming modern photography’s next frontier. For the third year running the annual Dronestagram International Drone Photography Contest has proven that drones have moved on from a niche novelty to a tool for photographers to send their cameras sky-high – turning drones into a serious form of photography in its own right. Supported by National Geographic, the international competition awards the most jaw-dropping, innovative aerial shots from all over the world. Professional photographers to amateur enthusiasts alike from around the globe have submitted more than 6,000 pictures, but judges had to whittle down the entrants to a lucky few winners over three categories: Travel, Nature Wildlife, and Sports Adventure.
