The selected images of the drone photography competition 2019

The International Drone Photography Competition 2019, Hosted By Art Photo Travel Association, Was Held In Seven Different Topics, And The Winners Were Announced.

The Drone Awards photography contest is the most critical competition in aerial photography and imaging and is a project of the  Art Photo Travel Association. This competition belongs to a different genre and is deliberately separated from comparison with traditional photography.

Aerial photos and videos that use fixed-wing aircraft, helicopters, uncrewed aerial vehicles, balloons, blimps, airships, kites, and parachutes can compete in this photography contest.

Art Photo Travel is a non-profit association that creates cultural initiatives to develop, expand, and improve art, historical monuments, customs, culture, and natural beauty.

The second annual drone photography contest hosted by the Art Photo Travel Association has announced the winners and finalists of the 2019 Aerial Photography Contest. In this competition, more than 4,500 works from 107 countries have been submitted for competition in seven subjects, including wildlife, urban, abstract, and nature photography.

In the 2019 drone photography contest, the photographer of the year award was given to a Polish photographer named Jesek Denka. He photographed skiers competing in the main competition of the Bieg Piastow Ski Festival in Poland.

Submitted images were judged by a group of internationally renowned photography experts.

 All photos have been submitted anonymously to the jury to avoid bias.

Awards in seven subjects have been awarded to 44 photographers from 34 countries, including Austria, Australia, China, France, Spain, the United States, and Vietnam. The winning photographers in seven categories are as follows:
