After almost one year, the long-awaited results of Agora #Aerial2020 aerial photography competition were finally released. This competition features aerial photographs from all over the world. Take a look at the 20 best photographs below, and let us know about your views in the comments!

The organizers of the competition received more than 9000 entries this year. The grand prize of $1000 was won by a Dutch photographer nicknamed @by_ewold. He submitted an extremely stunning photo of windmills in Zaanse Schans village that looks out of this world, titled “A magic morning in The Netherlands”.

Selecting the best out of so many amazing clicks was probably very difficult. Octavi Royo, CEO and co-founder of Agora stated: “When you see the world from above, you realize how important the point of view can be”, which is very true. Aerial view of certain thing often gives a clearer, and better perspective, and this winning photograph and the ones that followed are proof for the unmatched, divine beauty that can be captured from above.
