Tens of thousands of drone videos from around the world have been narrowed down to a handful of finalists in the first-ever AirVūz Drone Video Awards.
More than 33,000 videos uploaded to AirVuz.com between January 1, 2017 and December 15, 2017 were eligible to be chosen as finalists. The contest was open to anyone in the world who uploaded an originally-shot drone video on AirVuz.com.
