Online weekly contest rewards $1,000USD to the aerial content creator that uploads the best drone video in the world to

MINNEAPOLIS — One drone pilot is now $1,000 richer after winning a new video contest.

Noel Thomas won the inaugural AirVūz Drone Video of the Week contest with his video titled “Dreamscapes 4K,” which included aerial footage of locations all over the world — from New York to South Korea to Hong Kong. The video features shots of skylines, waterside locales, bridges, unique hiking locations and more.

“I’m always experimenting with new aerial techniques,” Thomas said. “I love to travel and I’m always searching for new and unique places to capture and share with the world.”

AirVū, the world’s leading drone video and photography sharing platform, launched the “Drone Video of the Week” contest in which one content creator will be chosen for the weekly USD$1,000 prize. All drone videos uploaded to are eligible to win. The contest began April 2.

The winning video received the most votes in a public poll and beat out four other finalists: “4K Iceland Drone Adventure,” “Exploring the Galapagos in 4K,” “Drone Video Reel” and “24 HRS.” Finalists were chosen based on a variety of factors, including quality of footage, originality, music selection and editing techniques.

The AirVūz curation staff selected the five finalists from more than 1,000 aerial videos uploaded to during the week of April 2. Videos considered for the contest were uploaded between April 2 and April 8.

The contest continues for a third week, with another USD$1,000 up for grabs for drone pilots from all over the world. This week’s contest runs from April 16 through 11:59 p.m. CT on April 22. Finalists from last week’s contests were also announced on Monday, April 16th and can be found here.

The Drone Video of the Week contest follows the success of the inaugural AirVūz Drone Video Awards, which selected the best drone videos and photos of 2017. Voters chose winners in 13 categories from a total of more than 33,000 videos.
