Winners Drone Pic of the Week Contest 20

in Drone5 months ago

Wow, what a great week of drone posts! Many thanks to all our contributors. A great mix of Video, and stills. I didn't send a separate announcement out, but we had a record number of posts.

I'm deciding whether or not I send out a separate announcement post or not as I often struggle coming up with a new photo each week. Let me know your thoughts in the comments. Do you prefer a separate contest announcement, or should I just stick it in the bottom of this post?

Even if you don't get out to fly, let's see some pics of those drones!

Here are the 3 top winners for our contest this week. They will each receive 200 Ecency points each that they can use to promote their post, someone else's post or however else they choose! Note, some of the Honorable Mentions may find a gift in their basket as well for participation and for helping to promote the new community. Many thanks to all.

While I actually like photos better most of the time, this week our three top winners are all videos.

Top 3 Winners (Not in any particular order): Be sure to click the links above pics and view their full post will all pics and videos!

Winner 1 @jemmanuel for his great waterfall video. I'm a bit partial to waterfalls, and this included some nice shots.

Winner 2 @article61 Love the marina and cliffs over Italy. On my list to visit someday.

Winner #3 @namiks for his "Bored" compilation. I like the quick flips and short videos that quickly move from one scene to another.. nice job editing!

Several great Honorable mentions this week.
Honorable Mentions:
HM 1 @sharker for the very dramatic color shot. I was back and forth on this for winner slot, but will almost always pick multi-pic or video shots over a single. But this one is fantastic, I would like it on my wall.

@bombaycrypto for the nice balloon shots. Love the glow!

And Yes, this kicks off the next weekly Drone Pic of the Week Contest 21 which will end on 2022/08/26. I'll wait for feedback until I decide if there will be separate announcement posts to kick them off each week or not.


As for separate posts with announcements, in my opinion, they should be done - at least so that a person who accidentally looks at the community page can see them and think about participating, see the conditions and so on.

And if it is difficult to choose a new photo for the cover of the post every week, then you can either make one permanent, or make collage from photos of the winners of previous rounds, periodically changing them. And maybe a noticeable title "Contest" or something like that in the picture.

Thanks for the feedback, and those are some good ideas.

You're welcome. Or, by the way, you can make a joint post with the announcement of the winner in the previous contest and at the same time explicitly invitation to the next stage of the contest, as many do, for example @photofeed or @derangedvisions.

Bang, I did it again... I just rehived your post!
Week 119 of my contest just can now check the winners of the previous week!

Thanks for the nod! You really were spoilt with entries. Really enjoy seeing all these talented drone operators and editors. I’m learning so much just by watching their work. I’d say keep up with the announcement posts for now, but that’s easy for me to say as I’m not the now have to write them 😂

Thanks for the mention! I can't take any credit, but will certainly let my daily know the you enjoyed the Lake Michigan sunrise!

Thank you again @ksteem ! Finally! I found the right community :)

So many great entries this week! Congrats to the winners!

Thanks a lot! Glad to be in Honorable Mention :)
As for the fact that there is only one photo in my post, it seems to me that it is quite self-sufficient and does not require accompanying photos - at least in my opinion. In any case, I'm very glad you liked it!

Thank you for this selection

Thanks for taking the time to post in our group. Always love your quality shots.
