SkyPixel, the world’s largest aerial photography online community, has launched a global aerial photography contest called ‘Elevate Yourself’ in conjunction with DJI, the leading global manufacturer in aerial-imaging technology.

The grand prize is a DJI Phantom 4 drone, and additional prizes include DJI Credits valued at $500, $300 and $100. The submission deadline is August 31, 2016 and the list of winners will be announced on September 9, 2016. To enter, visit www.skypixel.com/events/sports

The popularity of aerial photography and videography has provided not just creators, but also athletes, a way to help them train, learn about their techniques and see things from a different perspective. The introduction of the DJI Phantom 4 makes doing all of this even easier. The ActiveTrack feature on the Phantom 4 allows it to recognize and follow a person, and capture every moment along the way, whether they are a downhill skier, marathon runner or biker.
