Red Bull looking for the world’s best action photographers

There are less than six weeks left to get your entries in for the second Red Bull Illume Image Quest.

The contest aims to find the world’s best action sport photographers. You are invited to submit a maximum of five images to one or more of ten categories – culture, playground, energy, spirit, close up, wings, sequence, new creativity, experimental and illumination.

The competition is fierce though – nearly 4000 photos have already been uploaded!

A panel of photo editors will review the submissions and 50 finalists will be announced. The judges will choose overall winners but members of the public will then be able to vote for their favourite pictures and a People’s Choice Award will be given. Elite athletes will also be invited to award an Athlete’s Choice.

The winner will receive a Leica S2 camera and photography equipment to the value of 30,000 euros. Other prizes will also be awarded.
