After cities like Chicago, Dublin and Hong Kong – now the Winner Award Ceremony is heading for the mountains, the place where the magic of these breathtaking photos happens! We are delighted to announce that the location for the announcement of the Red Bull Illume Image Quest 2019 Winners is on top of the mountain Kronplatz in the stunning Dolomites of South Tyrol, Italy: The LUMEN - Museum of Mountain Photography.
This jaw-dropping venue will host the three-day-event from November 18 to 20 – in addition to the ceremony there are workshops, seminars, and more, in an inspiring environment for the 110 most influential photography minds of this scene including the finalists and judges.
On November 20, the 64 finalist images, 11 category and the overall winner will be unveiled and they will pick up an incredible set of prizes valued at €100,000. Submit your images until July 31 on redbullillume.com to take the chance to become a finalist and be at the Red Bull Illume Winner Award Ceremony 2019!
We can’t think of a place more perfect. The Museum of Mountain Photography has an 1800m2 exhibition space, located just a few hundred meters away from the Messner Mountain Museum by Zaha Hadid – and hosting the AlpiNN - food and space restaurant, led by 3-star Michelin chef Norbert Niederkofler.
Kronplatz has granted the Red Bull Illume guests exclusive access to the LUMEN on top of the mountain a week before its official season opening. Throughout the year and regardless of the weather, the mountain can be explored because of its unsurpassed variety of hike and bike trails exuding a unique, magical appeal. The backdrop of the Dolomites surrounding Kronplatz provides the perfect place for the
Winner Award Ceremony.
At this three-day-event a variety of workshops will be held by the global partners Sony, SanDisk, Skylum and COOPH with plenty of shooting opportunities. All of this will be reserved exclusively for finalists, so don’t miss your chance to become one and earn your invitation for the gathering of the 110 most influential people in adventure and action sports imagery!
At this time, we’re also happy to officially welcome Salewa, the Dolomites based company, to the Red Bull Illume Partner family for the Winner Award Ceremony. They will bring all their knowledge of the region, as well as tradition and innovation to engineer equipment intended to change the game of mountain sports equipment, making them the perfect fit as Local Partner for this event.
At the heart of the experience is, of course, the ceremony itself, where the 11 category winners and overall winner will be announced and crowned. At the same time, Red Bull Illume kicks off the Global Exhibit Tour. After the global unveiling the 2x2m lightboxes will remain on top of the mountain – offering a unique and incredible experience for visitors to the resort.
