An incredible photo of Western Australia taken in the Margaret River area titled “Wyadup Spa” won the grand prize — a selection of DJI drone equipment and Australia travel packages worth nearly AUS$30,000 ($22,273).
The second-prize winner — also taken in Western Australia — featured a surfer on the waves in Secret Harbour, just outside of Perth.
Coming in third was a photograph of Rigby Island, Victoria. Check out the above gallery to see all three, as well as the nine additional finalists.
Tourism Australia’s chief marketing officer Lisa Ronson, who was also one of the competition judges, said in a statement she was blown away by the quantity and the quality of entries.
“There are some amazingly talented photographers out there who are using drone technology to capture some breath-taking images of Australia,” she said.
