Only one week to go until submission closes for the world’s premier action sports photo contest.


With its past three editions—2007, 2010, and 2013—the Red Bull Illume has established itself as the premier showcase for action sports photography worldwide. “It has brought sensational pictures to the limelight and also uncovered outstanding new talent”, says Klaus Polzer, photo editor of Downdays Magazine and this year part of the selected crew of judges for the Red Bull Illume.

While you might think that only big name photographers have a shot at the coveted awards, this is not true. Some talented photographers have actually started their professional careers through winning at the Red Bull Illume. “Some categories usually see a selection of the best action sports athletes performing at the most amazing places and it is naturally the big name photographers who get the chance to shoot this. But there are other categories like ‘Close-up’ or ‘Lifestyle’ that offer the same opportunities for everyone”, explains Klaus Polzer. “So it is really important to choose the right category for your best photos.”

In fact, if you add ‘Enhance’ and ‘New Creativity’, two categories based on post-production skills and creative approach, as well as ‘Mobile’, a new category for 2016 exclusively for shots taken with mobile phones or tablets, half of the categories at Red Bull Illume are likely to see some previously unknown photographers among the Top 50 finalists. So you better get in front of your computer screen, browse through your archives and submit your best photographs. It’s easy. Simply go to www.redbullillume.com, create an account and upload your images. But hurry up, submission closes at March 31st 2016!
