Since 2015, AirVūz.com has been the world’s leading platform for sharing videos and photography created from drones. If you’re a dronethusiast with an eye for detail and a penchant for the picture, it’s a great place to see a gigantic and ever-growing library of drone media content that are easily storted into 13 categories including travel, extreme sports, golf courses, drone racing, landmarks and more!
But now AirVūz has given users even more of a reason to choose them over their competitors with their “Drone Video Of The Week Contest,” where a pilot just like you can enter a video to win a $1000 prize.
All you have to do to enter is submit a video to their website by clicking the big “Upload” button in the top right corner. You have until 11:59 PM Central Time on Sunday to do so, but if you miss a week you can always enter into the next contest! Every week, the AirVūz curation staff selects five finalists from all the videos submitted (often well over a thousand entries) based on quality of footage, originality, music selection, editing techniques, and other factors. The five best videos are then given their own page on the website so that the AirVūz community can select a winner. So even if you don’t win, this seems like a really cool way to get your drone videography work out there and to get people sharing it and commenting on it.
If you’re not a photographer or videographer yourself, it’s still worth checking out this contest just to see some of the amazing videos people have submitted. I’m a big fan of “Kingdom Of The Wild”, the winner from the first week of April which was filmed by Mike Bishop of California. The film – shot entirely with a DJI Phantom 4 Pro – uses sweeping vistas, exciting closeups of natural wildlife, and even time lapse photography to demonstrate the natural beauty of Namibia, Africa. The film was made for a good cause, too – produced in correlation with the Cheetah Conservetion fund and Erindi private game reserve to spread awareness of the endangered wildlife in Namibia and why it needs to preserved. So it’s not just about making money – the AirVūz Drone Video Of The Week Contest is a great way to spread awareness of the issues that are important to you.
So if you want to use your drone to make a bit of extra cash or you’re a drone videographer who wants to take your craft to the next level, the Drone Video Of The Week Contest is a great opportunity that you should definitely consider being a part of! You can enter as often as you like at no charge, so go out there, find a place to shoot, and make something great. Who knows – maybe you’ll see your name and video in a future Dronethusiast newsletter!
