Created in tribute to one of the first aerial photos taken in 1858 over Paris by Gaspard-Félix Tournachon, the Paris Aerial Photography Awards competition is a big deal to many photographers around the world. 

“For my first participation in a competition, I am very happy to have won a prize,” Cédric said. “It was a great opportunity to show my work to professionals and to obtain, in a way, their recognition. I want to thank my friends for supporting me in my projects and for believing in me”.
