Red Bull Illume: Photography exhibition illuminates Bern

Presented on life-sized lightboxes, the Top 50 images of the Red Bull Illume Image Quest 2010 will be on display in Bern at the Waisenhausplatz every night from October 14 to 23, 2011. Five Swiss photographers will also be featured in the exhibition.

4,773 photographers from 112 countries submitted approximately 23,000 action and adventure sports images to the Red Bull Illume Image Quest 2010. The Top 50 images were finally selected in August 2010: all true artworks that capture a special moment in time and reflect the emotions, happiness, pain and speed of the world of sports. Displayed on 2x2m lightboxes, the winning images are currently traveling the world and the six previous stops in the USA, Germany and Ireland have attracted more than 100,000 visitors. Bern will be the only Swiss city to host the exhibition before it continues its journey in 2012 throughout Europe and Asia.

Also featured in the Top 50 images are five Swiss photographers: Sébastien Annex (Vevey/VD), Dominic Zimmermann (Zurich), Thomas Stöckli (Zurich/2 images), Silvano Zeiter (Fieschertal/VS) and Christophe Margot (Choex/VS). The Red Bull Illume Exhibition is sure to brighten the dreary October nights when it turns the spotlight on Bern’s Waisenhausplatz every day from 19:00 to 22:00.
