Aerial photo contest aims to capture Australia’s unique beauty
The Australia From Above contest is being run by SkyPixel, the world’s most popular aerial photography community, and is co-sponsored by Tourism Australia and drone manufacturer DJI.
“Drone photography is gaining huge popularity in Australia, with the country home to a rising number of very talented aerial photographers,” said Lisa Ronson, Chief Marketing Officer, Tourism Australia.
“Advances in technology are enabling us to tell Australia’s story in ways previously not possible, and the levels of engagement we get when we share some of these amazing drone clips on our social channels is just extraordinary.
“It’s really exciting to be part of a competition which provides such a great platform for this new generation of content creators to capture the rich colours, patterns and textures of Australia’s diverse landscape and share this with the rest of the world,” she said.
The contest is open from March 2 to May 2 and welcomes professionals and enthusiasts alike to share their visions of the country.
Competition details and entry submissions are online at
and the Grand Prize consists of a DJI drone package, a three-day journey to Lord Howe Island for two and a three-day journey to Kangaroo Island for two.
Tourism Australia will also share the winners’ content to millions of fans and followers of Australia on social media.
