More signs that drone photography is being taken seriously come with the news that heavyweight media entity National Geographic has partnered with DJI to run an aerial photographic contest that closes on October 31st. A unique aspect of the contest is that non-drone owners have a chance to rent a Mavic Pro for up to two weeks for free.
The bad news is that the competition is only being run in the US and Canada.
Even so, it’s good to see recreational drone usage being given this sort of recognition. Hopefully they’ll expand the contest to the rest of the world next time.
