The co-founder of Dronestagram, Guillaume Jarret, shared the process judges followed to selecting the winners in an interview with International Business Times. He started by explaining the basic requirements a photo must have in order to be considered and given recognition.
“A good drone photo is a picture that you immediately identify as a drone photo,” he said. “It is taken at a low altitude, near the target of the picture, and you must see on the picture that it is impossible it has been taken with another device than a drone. Drones can capture images in places that are impossible to reach with another flying device.”
