Professional and amateur drone operators have a chance to be awarded for their work.

The Drone Film Festival and Competition is returning to the New York State Fair this summer for the second year.

Applications just opened up, and there are eight categories that filmmakers can enter.

The categories range from a student competition to landscape photography. There's also a category just for films made in New York State.

The film festival and competition is designed to highlight Central New York's drone corridor, a 50-mile area devoted to cutting-edge research and development for the drone industry.
