SkyPixel, the world’s most popular aerial photography community in collaboration with DJI, has concluded a two-month global competition by selecting a series of beautiful and breathtaking aerial images as the top drone photographs of 2016.
The 2016 SkyPixel Photo of the Year went to “Fishermen close the net,” pictured here. The image by Ge Zheng was shot in Fujian Province in China, in which reflections, colors and the unique aerial perspective create a startling composition from netting, poles and water. SkyPixel’s blue-ribbon judging panel selected his photo and other category winners from over 27,000 entries submitted from 131 countries.
The winning photos were selected by a jury of established photojournalists from TIME and Condé Nast Traveler, along with a host of prize-winning photographers and popular travel photographers.
For his winning entry, Zheng will receive a DJI Inspire 2 drone, a DJI Mavic Pro drone, Epson Moverio BT-300 smart glasses, Epson SureColor P400 Wide Format Photo Printer and an Adobe Creative Cloud Photography Plan 1-year membership.
