The organizers of the 4th Drone Show Competition are thrilled to announce an extension of the application deadline in response to the overwhelming interest and numerous requests from participants who are eager to perfect their animations.
New Application Deadline: October 30!
This extended deadline grants contestants more time to refine their entries and participate in one of the most esteemed Drone Show Competitions. In 2023, participants can submit applications in eight diverse nominations. Among them, the “Best Drone Show Animation” category requires the creation of a specific project for the competition.
To apply for participation in the “Best Drone Show Animation” category, participants should utilize specialized software like Blender to craft thematic animations featuring two or more figures with seamless transitions. This year’s themes for the nomination include:
Fantastic Creatures: Transport your audience to magical and fantastical realms inspired by fairy tales, myths, and fantasy literature. Drones will breathe life into dragons, elves, enchanted castles, and more.
Vanishing Wildlife: In this theme, participants aim to create a drone show that raises awareness about the critical issue of disappearing wildlife and the vital importance of biodiversity conservation. Drones can vividly depict endangered animal species, tell their stories, and emphasize the significance of protecting their habitats.
Nominations such as “Best Drone Show for an Event,” “Drone Show Storytelling,” “Drone Show as Marketing Tool,” “Drone Show for Raising Social Awareness,” “Drone Show with a small fleet (up to 100 drones),” “Collaborative Drone Show,” and “Rising Star Drone Show” involve simpler application steps. Participants in these nominations are required to submit videos of drone shows that have already taken place along with their descriptions.
Outstanding participants with captivating works and innovative show concepts will have the opportunity to present their drone show choreography at the International Drone Show Festival in Spain in 2024. Furthermore, winners may receive exciting prizes, including FPV Drones, tickets to Cannes Lions 2024, tickets to the influential design event, the International Forum SIGGRAPH Asia 2024, and more.
