Stand Out: These Are The Best Drone Photos of 2017

Drones have developed rapidly in recent years. Manufacturers such as DJI, Parrot and Jamara offer a wide range of different models - and the hype is far from over, at least that's how it seems. New models from different manufacturers are constantly coming onto the market, which will appeal to pilots of all kinds with special camera systems and flight assistants.

The hype is also noticeable in the social web on platforms such as Dronestagram. The portal, which is comparable to Instagram, Tumblr and Picasa, specializes in drones photos. UAV owners can share their photos with other users, comment on them or have them rated. Now Dronestagram has announced the best drone photos of the year 2017 - and the winners are absolutely proud!

With a new category: Creativity

The winners of this year's award were selected from a total of 8000 photos and divided into three categories:"Nature","People" and "Urban". In addition, the special category "Creativity" was included for the first time in 2017, which honours particularly creative and unusual photos. The evaluation was carried out by a team of experienced photo editors, who acted as jurors.
