New York State Fair To Host 2nd Drone Video Competition
SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) — Entries are being accepted for the second annual Drone Film Festival and Competition at the New York State Fair.
There are eight categories, including one for films featuring New York state. At least half of each video must be shot using a drone or other unmanned aerial vehicle.
Entries must be uploaded at the event's site on FilmFreeway.com by the end of June. Fees for most entries are $25. The competition will be professionally judged and winners in each category will be eligible for a $250 prize.
Last year's Best in Show video was about using a drone to deliver medicine to save a snakebite victim in the Amazon rainforest. Other winners presented views of the Erie Canal, Alaska and Iceland.
