VTOL drone company Wingtra is launching the Wingtra Earth Day challenge – a contest that will see the company award three winners with WingtraOne GEN II drones for environmental and humanitarian projects.

In order to apply, participants will be asked to describe their project or organization, explain how they would make use of the WingtraOne GEN II drone, and make a case for why their project deserves to win. Applications are due by March 31st, and nine nominees will be selected by an internal Wingtra jury and announced on April 7th. Wingtra will then hold a public vote of the nine finalists on LinkedIn from April 11th to 21st, with the three winners to be announced on Earth Day, April 22nd.

Wingtra encourages entry by those who are part of a non-profit organization, university, research institute or government agency, whose application directly contributes to the good of the planet, who have a clear vision of how they would use their WingtraOne GEN II and can explain it in practical detail, who agree to share videos, images and outputs (ortho maps, point clouds, etc.) with Wingtra for communication purposes and agree to be interviewed about their experience with the WingtraOne GEN II, and who can make the company believe that they will be able to do good for our planet.
