Capturing views of what's below from a drone can completely change your perception of what you're actually seeing. These AirVūz contributors brought perspective and photography to a new level from these aerial views. Click here now to see the nominees and their videos for the Aerial Photography category! Tens of thousands of drone videos from around the world have been narrowed down to a handful of finalists in the first-ever AirVūz Drone Video Awards. We have launched our first annual contest to celebrate the very best in drone cinematography. Drone videos and photos on AirVuz.com are viewed by more than 10 million people worldwide monthly. AirVuz.com is the second most viewed website in the drone industry. All videos uploaded to AirVuz.com between January 1, 2017 and December 15, 2017 were eligible to be chosen as finalists. The contest was open to anyone in the world who uploaded an originally-shot drone video on AirVuz.com. A plaque, cash and prizes will be awarded to winners in 13 categories, which include: People, Cities, Countries, Landscape, Freestyle FPV, Drone Racing, Tiny Whoop, Animals (including pets), Dronies (selfies taken with a drone), Sports, Originality, Reels and Photo. Five finalists in each category were selected by the staff of AirVūz, based on the quality, originality and creativity of a drone video or photograph uploaded on AirVuz.com in 2017. Videos submitted during 2017 will be ineligible to compete in 2018.
