Red Bull Illume

Known for giving wings to athletes and performers, and for throwing epic events, Red Bull also fuels the creative world.  Red Bull Illume is “the world’s premier international photography competition dedicated to the world of action and adventure sports.  Its purpose is to showcase the most exciting and creative action sports photography on the planet as art and bring the public into the world of action sports”.

Submissions were received between December 2012 and April 2013 for Image Quest 2013.  This is the third edition of the competition, which is held every 3 years. Tens of thousands of entries were narrowed down to 50 finalist images in ten categories.  Judges include a range of athletes, photo editors and other international figures.

This week (August 29th) the 50 finalists will be revealed in a ceremony at the Avenue of Stars in Hong Kong.  Following the ceremony, these 50 images will travel the world as a stand-alone photo exhibition on 2×2-Meter light boxes, which will only be displayed at night in order to highlight the illuminated images.

An overall winner will be selected, as well as winners for each of the ten categories.  The image displayed above was the overall winner from 2010.  Chris Burkard of the USA took this phenomenal shot of Peter Mendia riding epic waves in Chile.
