In 2021, the drone industry came up with an idea to pay tribute to the 2021 drone leaders. They hosted an Inaugural Airward Awards to capture the best drone photos in the industry. The massive advocacy groups like AUVSI have called out these leaders exclusively. The new drone awards in town look to be the big news so far i.e. Airward.

In the new Airward Award ceremony, the organization looked at the 100 nominees selected from the international companies. From the 100 nominees, Airward brought the figure down to 16 winners, which were announced between 24th and 28th of May.

The nomination for the Inaugural Airward Awards was open from December 2020 to March 2021. The audience picked out the best drone leaders in the industry. There were three things that the audience looked into a leader i.e. innovation, responsibility and impact.
