The Most Incredible Photos in the World Taken by Drone

The 2017 SkyPixel Photo Contest has recognised the most incredible photos taken by drones last year.

SkyPixel, an aerial photo and video sharing platform, sifted through over 44,000 submissions from 141 countries in order to select the winners.

A panel made up of professional photographers, filmmakers, and creative directors from the likes of TIME and the International Center of Photography helped judge the entries from both professionals and amateur enthusiasts.

Winners were chosen in a number of categories, including a Grand Prize for the photo the year, as well as the best landscape, portrait, and story photos.

Surprisingly, few spots in the region had successfully brought the luck to the winners and it could be rare sights to few of us.

Thank you for capturing the beautiful sight of this region, winners!
