Created in tribute to one of the first aerial photos taken in 1858 over Paris by Gaspard-Félix Tournachon, the Paris Aerial Photography Awards, founded by Christophe Martin is inaugurating its first competition by inviting all professional and non-professional photographers to take part.
The competition was born to help photographers gain recognition, and it also has a role to play with the public. Aerial photography is the type of photography that best allows us to understand our impact as humans in today’s world, and that surprises our point of view by taking a bit of perspective.
The goal of the competition is to bring together the artistic legacy of aerial photography and the new photographic writings made with drones or shot from the top of a skyscraper, in order to create a new standard for excellence, and to promote the photographers who created it. The Paris Aerial Photography Awards is inviting all professional and non-professional photographers to submit their best aerial photographs. Whether you take photos from a high point of view or use tools such as drones, helicopters, hang gliders, paragliders, ULMs, and all sizes of aircraft, you are invited to submit your best photographs to celebrate the best of aerial and bird’s-eye view photography.
