For the third year in a row, Dronestagram — “the world’s first social network dedicated to aerial photography” — has partnered with National Geographic to put on a competition of epic proportions. This year, their International Drone Photography Contest racked up a whopping 6,000 entries with a mere nine of those being selected as winners. The contest was split into three categories, those being Travel, Sports and Adventure, and Nature and Wildlife, and the top three entries were chosen in those groups.

Take a look below at the stunning aerial shots that were crowned this year’s winners:
