CAA And VisitEngland Present ‘400ft Britain’ – A Photo/Video Contest Promoting Drone Safety
” Today sees the launch of ‘400ft Britain’, a drone photography and videography competition hosted by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), in partnership with VisitEngland to educate people about using drones safely while celebrating the UK’s beautiful countryside and supported by leading aviation players.
The competition is aimed at images of the countryside as drone flyers need to observe the UK Drone laws which prohibit flight over congested areas or within 50 metres of a person or building.
The competition runs until 31 January 2017, giving new droners the chance to hone their skills before setting outdoors to capture something uniquely, beautifully British. With autumn just breaking and winter on its way, the CAA and VisitEngland expect some stunning imagery to be submitted through the simple hashtag #400ftBritain either via Twitter or Instagram.
Entries will be hosted at www.400ftBritain.com throughout the course of the competition, with winners picked in February 2017, and an exhibition planned for the New Year to showcase the very best submissions, before the UK’s first official ‘Drone Photographer and Videographer of the Year’ are both announced. The winners will be picked by a panel of photography experts and will win an exclusive Phantom Flight School drone holiday.”
