Big Bang” by Armand Sarlangue. Photo of the Year.
“In the picture, a secondary fissure happening a few hundred meters from the main crater of Fagradalsfjall volcano during the very last eruptive phase. It was captured as a storm was hitting west Iceland, with rain and strong winds. Due to the difficult conditions, a drone capture like this is unique.”
These winning images take drone photography to new heights.

And, thanks to the Drone Photo Awards, it’s easier than ever to enjoy the creative magic that happens when a good photographer is paired with this incredible technology.

“Like a Painted Picture” by Krzysztof Krawczyk. 1st Classified, Wedding.
“The effect of the sun on the water, a felled tree and a brave bride lying on it: a magnificent picture drawn by nature. The surface of the water looks like a starry night sky, while the bride looks seems a dreamy princess.”
