Red Bull Illume

After the spectacular success of its inaugural edition, Red Bull Illume returns for a second competition. In 2010, the Image Quest will once again showcase the globe’s very best action and adventure sports images and honor the photographers behind them.

The Red Bull Illume Image Quest 2007 was the first-ever international photography competition of its kind. The best 50 images were chosen by a panel of photo editors and experts and were judged to have portrayed spirit, grit and edgy perfection in an outstanding manner. It was arguably the most dramatic compilation of action and adventure sports images ever assembled.
