Abingdon captured in snowy scene for drone photography contest

A beautiful snow-capped aerial view of Abingdon is just one of 800 photos submitted to the festive drone photography competition.

The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) #SHOTONMYDRONE Photo Contest has launched a festive contest.

Drone users across the UK are encouraged to come out and photograph the best party spots.

Contest organizers say there have already been some superb Abingdon submissions with a winter snapshot of the spire of St Helena’s Church and the River Thames covered in a blanket of white snow.

The photographer presenting the most Christmas snapshot before January 5 will have their image displayed at the London headquarters of the UK’s Royal Aeronautical Society, along with the other category winners.

The highly anticipated competition will be judged by a panel of experts including CAA President and avid photographer Sir Stephen Hillier; Anna Henly, an award-winning professional photographer; drone pilot and photography teacher; John Livesey, CAA Drone Inspector and BAFTA Laureate; and Tim Robinson of the Royal Aeronautical Society.

Jonathan Nicholson, UK Civil Aviation Authority, said: “Our Christmas award celebrates the festive fun and magical memories that users can have with drones when used responsibly. To make sure they do it safely, those who take their drone out for the first time this Christmas should make sure they are following the correct regulations and complying with the Dronecode.
