+ CONTEST EVERY TWO YEARS
The first change is the frequency; in light of the globally growing interest in photography and the sheer number of talented photographers, the event will now be hosted every two years instead of three – starting with the Image Quest 2019!
+ MOVING IMAGES
With the new Moving Image category, Red Bull Illume becomes more than just a photography contest. Responding to the explosion of dynamic video creators capturing jawdropping adventure and action sports moments, this category will feature the best video sequences of 5 – 30 seconds.
+ BEST OF INSTAGRAM BY SANDISK
Best of Instagram by SanDisk is for photographers most gram-worthy moments of show-stopping adventure and action sports on Instagram. This category starts earlier than the others and is judged by the community every month from February to June, 2019.
+ IN AND OUTDOOR EXHIBITION
The Exhibit Tour expands; in addition to the unique nighttime exhibition with 2x2m lightboxes, the 55 finalists will be illuminated on digital smart frames in an innovative Indoor Exhibition. The Indoor Exhibit Tour will run in parallel on three continents.
