Action Sports Photography – Red Bull Competition Winner Announced

The Red Bull Illume Image Quest is one of the premier photography competitions which caters for action and adventure sports photographers. This is the third time the competition has been held, with the competition also running in 2007 and 2010.

Submissions were accepted between 1December 2012 and 30 April 2013, and as in prior years, the competition attracted a high degree of interest from photographers internationally. And the result? WOW! The creativity and imagination behind some of these images is breathtaking.

See for yourself. Some of the finalist’s photos are presented below, all with due credit to the artists.

Based on the 3 year interval for this competition, its unlikely it will be run in 2014….so mark your callanders, entries for the next Red Bull Illume Image Quest photography competition should open in December 2015 for the 2016 finale.

Congratulations to Lorenz Holder, the winner of the 2013 Red Bull Illume Image Quest competition with his image (below) of snowboarder Xaver Hoffmann performing a jump at a satellite dish in snowy Raisting, Germany.
