From NYSFair.ny.gov:

The Great New York State Fair is launching the state’s first-ever competition for videos created using cameras on drones. Entries for the professionally-judged competition can be uploaded at the event’s site on FilmFreeway.com through July 31. Videos in eight categories, including a category for films featuring New York State, will compete for medals, with the winners in each of the categories eligible for the Best In Show prize of $250.

Videos must be no longer than 5 minutes, except for the Corporate/Industrial category, where videos can be no longer than 10 minutes. At least 50% of each video must have been shot using a drone or other unmanned aerial vehicle. Creators can submit their videos in one of the following categories:

  • New York State Drones: Videos created completely in New York State
  • Narrative: A fiction or non-fiction story told using a drone
  • Landscape & Architecture: Amazing, beautiful scenes shot using drones
  • Showreel: A compilation of clips from various drone-shot videos
  • Sports: Athletic activity and competition shot using drones
  • Healthcare: Videos highlight how drones are being used to improve the delivery of health services
  • Corporate/Industrial/Business: Videos that feature drones and the work they are doing
  • Student: Videos created by an enrolled high school or college student, on any subject. Students may submit to any other category.

Welcome to drone day on the Adafruit blog. Every Monday we deliver the latest news, products and more from the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), quadcopter and drone communities. Drones can be used for video & photography (dronies), civil applications, policing, farming, firefighting, military and non-military security work, such as surveillance of pipelines. Previous posts can be found via the #drone tag and our drone / UAV categories.


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
