"The art of visual expression revolves around pushing the boundaries of the mind and nurturing creative thought,” said Nan Li, the Photo Director of Southern Weekly. Now, in its 9th year, the SkyPixel Annual Photo & Video Contest continues to be a window to captivating moments captured from the sky. This contest will ignite curiosity, reimagine the art of imagery, and immerse the public into the enchanting world of aerial photography.



A Competition Shaped by You

The SkyPixel Annual Photo & Video Contest is a celebration of the remarkable stories that have shaped the art of image capture. Whether from solid ground or soaring through the skies, these stories embody the creative and daring spirit that defines the field. Over the course of nine years, SkyPixel has embraced its users and strived to shape a contest that authentically reflects the desires and aspirations of the global community. This inclusive approach has drawn in an astounding 260,000 submissions and garnered over a billion views worldwide, making it a platform where exceptional works and photographers receive the recognition they deserve and where more people can appreciate the allure of aerial photography. The growth of the Skypixel platform is a testament to the joy of creation, the exploration of new trends, and the advancement of aerial photography.


This year's SkyPixel Photo & Video Contest brings exciting changes that promise to elevate the competition. Three new Monthly Competitions have been introduced in addition to the main competition, with each month focusing on a unique category. In November, the focus is Multi-focal length, December spotlights FPV images, and in January will highlight Handheld photography. Submissions to the monthly competitions can also be entered into the main competition, where they can contend for both monthly and overall awards. Additionally, a new creative category for video creators has been incorporated, providing even more opportunities for participants to showcase their talents.

In photography, there are seasoned experts such as Wen Huang, a World Press Photo judge and Senior Editor, and Anne Farrar, Assistant Photography Chief Editor at National Geographic, Nan Li, the Photo Director of Southern Weekly, and Daniel Kordan, a renowned landscape photographer.


In the video category, the judges include Michael Fitzmaurice, the Aerial Director of Photography of "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle," and Xiaoshi Zhao, known for his award-winning work on "Forever Enthralled." Bing Xi, a prominent figure in the Chinese TVC industry, and celebrated filmmaker Brandon Li round out the panel.

I really wonder how the platform and the algorithm works.. For me it still seems to be a dead platform. There's a ton of poeple uploading (just like you and me). But they hardly get any notice. Mostly the same guys get featured and take home the prices, because if you don't get featured you won't be on the list for the price. No matter how good your image/video is.
That's frustrating...
