This is the sixth edition of Red Bull Illume, the world’s greatest adventure and action sports imagery contest, which showcases the most creative and captivating images on the planet while shining a light on the hard work of those behind the lens, who share the passion, lifestyle, and culture of the scene.

There are ten categories creators can choose from, each with their own criteria which can be submitted via redbullillume.com or on Instagram while tagging @redbullillume and #rbi21submission until July 31, 2021.

Today Red Bull Illume reveals the first finalists to be selected in this year’s edition – a photo and a moving image in the Best of Instagram by Lenovo category. One is a stunning image of a skier and snowboarder performing tricks in front of a full moon by the photographer Yhabril while the moving image clip by Patrick Conroy captures a skier riding deep snow. 

The Best of Instagram Category is backed by Lenovo, an industry leader in innovative and smarter computing technology that enables a more inclusive, sustainable and inspired world.

Every month from March to July the submitted images are judged first by an internal Red Bull Illume jury who selects the top five photo and five moving images. These become official Red Bull Illume semi-finalists. The Red Bull Illume community then votes to select the best photo and moving image. These monthly winners then become official Red Bull Illume finalists. 

We are excited to share the very first finalists for the Best of Instagram by Lenovo category and the first who will go through with a chance to be selected as a category winner in the Red Bull Illume Image Quest 2021.

These two finalists take home amazing prizes to help further their creativity, including latest tablets from Lenovo and storage solutions from SanDisk. They will also be invited to the Winner Award Ceremony in November 2021 and their work will be on display in a breathtaking exhibition. It’s an opportunity to gain unparalleled exposure all around the world and become part of the Red Bull Illume global network. In addition, these images are officially in the running to become the Best of Instagram by Lenovo Category Winners, voted by the community out of all five photo and five moving image finalists in August.  

Feeling inspired? Then take your shot and enter Red Bull Illume Image Quest 2021 with your best adventure and action sports imagery. There are awesome prizes that you could win, which are valued at over €200,000!  Remember, there are ten categories to choose from so think carefully about which one you choose for your photos. The Red Bull Illume judges are carefully chosen from a selection of renowned photo editors and photo experts to form an international judging panel. Judges will base their decisions on a mix of technical superiority, composition, creativity, artistic flair and overall qualities of photographic excellence.
