Dronestagram has announced the winners of its third annual International Drone Photography Contest. Three winners were selected in each of the following categories: ‘Travel,’ ‘Sports Adventure,’ and ‘Nature Wildlife.’ According to National Geographic, which was one of the contest’s sponsors, Dronestagram received 5900 entries from photographers across 28 countries.

The Dronestagram contest seeks out the best photographs taken with a drone, and deliberately looks for images that couldn’t have been taken any other way. According to Dronestagram marketing and development head Guillaume Jarret who spoke with Nat Geo, 'A great drone picture is a picture that you immediately identify as a drone photo. It is taken at a low altitude, near the target of the picture.'

The winners are:

Travel category:
