The International Drone Photography Contest has ended, giving us the best drone photos of 2017, taken by amateur and professional photographers alike. The annual contest is run by Dronestagram, a website dedicated to aerial photography, and in partnership with National Geographic, among other sponsors. This year, over 8,000 photos were submitted to compete in three categories: Nature, Urban and People. The winning photos in each category are below. If you don’t own a drone yet, maybe these photos will inspire your next purchase.
