First Drone Video of the Week Winner Announced

One drone pilot is now $1,000 richer after winning a new video contest.

Noel Thomas of New Jersey won the inaugural AirVūz Drone Video of the Week contest with his video titled “Dreamscapes 4K,” which included aerial footage of locations all over the world — from New York to South Korea. The video features shots of skylines, waterside locales, bridges, unique hiking locations and more.

AirVūz.com, the world’s leading drone video and photography sharing platform, launched the “Drone Video of the Week” contest in which one content creator will be chosen for the weekly USD$1,000 prize. All drone videos uploaded to AirVuz.com are eligible to win. The contest began April 2.

The winning video beat out four other finalists: “4K Iceland Drone Adventure,” “Exploring the Galapagos in 4K,” “Drone Video Reel” and “24 HRS.” Finalists were chosen based on a variety of factors, including quality of footage, originality, music selection and editing techniques.

The AirVūz curation staff selected the five finalists from more than 1,000 videos uploaded to Airvuz.com during the week of April 2. Videos considered for the contest were uploaded between April 2 and April 8.

The contest continues for a second week, with another USD$1,000 up for grabs for drone pilots from all over the world. This week’s contest runs from April 9 through 11:59 p.m. CT on April 15.

The Drone Video of the Week contest follows the success of the inaugural AirVūz Drone Video Awards, which selected the best drone videos and photos of 2017. Voters chose winners in 13 categories from a total of more than 33,000 videos.
