On March 15, 2014, in association with National Geographic, drone-photography site Dronestagram announced their first-ever International Drone Photography Awards, inviting drone owners the world overd to share their best in high-flying photography (surprisingly, no drone surf footage). After nearly four months of submissions, Dronestagram has announced the winners— and the results take this nascent photographic technique to soaring new heights.
