Pinoy places 2nd in 1st Nat Geo drone aerial photo contest
What is the perfect view from the sky like? For a Filipino snapshooter, it’s the sight of folks looking up with a smile.
This simple shot of cyclists and bystanders smiling at drone was enough for Jericho Saniel Lunario to finish second in National Geographic’s 1st drone aerial photo contest.
Lunario’s photo, entitled ‘Happy Filipinos’ and shot in Manila, beat “more than one thousand aerial photos,” only to be bested by Indonesian Dendi Pratama’s majestic photo of ‘Flying with an Eagle’ taken Bali Barat National Park.
Pratama’s shot will be published on National Geographic France and will receive “a drone, camera, and prints of their photo.” Lunario will get prizes from sponsors for his second-place finish.
