Flying in the Sky
I have always longed to be free as a bird flying in the sky. For a long time, images of the world seen from a bird’s-eye view have been regarded somewhat extraordinary. Using today’s technology, however, such images are quite effortlessly obtainable. By virtue of the drones with cameras, aerial photos are readily accessible today. Now I feel it is time to really meet the world I am living in —its beauty and its marvel in their entirety— with the aid of the cameras that can fly.
Submissions must be shot using a quadcopter.
Individuals and collectives are welcome to apply; individuals should select and enter between six and ten photographs from a particular series or body of work. Artist of the year (winner) and between 10 and 20 photographers / artists will benefit from:
