Who is SkyPixel?

SkyPixel is its own brand but is owned by DJI SZ DJI Technology Co., Ltd. You probably best know DJI for their consumer drones the foldable Mavic Pro and Phantom series.

What are they saying about the ‘Australia From Above’ competition?

DJI Vice President of Marketing, Danny Zheng said:

“Australia is a stunning, diverse country, from the inspiring expanse of its pristine white beaches to the raw power of its rich, red outback. Capturing these landscapes from above empowers photographers to see Australia’s extraordinary beauty in an entirely new way, and we can’t wait to see the amazing images from inspired aerial creators.”

Tourism Australia Chief Marketing Officer, Lisa Ronson said:

“Drone photography is gaining huge popularity in Australia, with the country home to a rising number of very talented aerial photographers. Advances in technology are enabling us to tell Australia’s story in ways previously not possible, and the levels of engagement we get when we share some of these amazing drone clips on our social channels is just extraordinary.

It’s really exciting to be part of a competition which provides such a great platform for this new generation of content creators to capture the rich colours, patterns and textures of Australia’s diverse landscape and share this with the rest of the world.”
