The potential for drones to tell stories about unstaged newsworthy events or natural phenomena is enormous. Around the world stage, these flying cameras capture scenes of significance, providing footage that is both valuable to our global community and compelling to watch. The capable quadcopters flown by these brave and socially aware pilots become forces for good in sharing information, and we are proud to have the important messages and stories behind these films on our site.
Congratulations to the drone pilots of these nominated videos in the Narrative / Documentary category, and congratulations to Droneland for winning with the film Hong Kong Protests 2019!
You’ll find more footage of these flying cameras doing important and otherwise challenging tasks in our Protests and Storytelling collections.
