  • Disappointing the Organisers and Partners allowed pictures that put innocent people in danger when pictures were taken. National Geographic should explain their policy regarding safety of their photographs. 


  • Awesome pictures though

  • Call me cynical, but If I were the FAA looking to crack down on idiots flying where I don't want them to, all I'd have to do is just trawl the pictures on this site

  • This contest looks like it ran beter than the Airbus Cargo Drone competition. Well done to the winners.
