Red Bull Illume is the world's greatest international imagery contest dedicated to adventure and action sports.
Every winner will receive amazing photography prizes valued at over €200,000! But the real prize? The worldwide exposure and prestige that comes with becoming an official Red Bull Illume winner.
There’s a Red Bull Illume category for every sky-high jump, impossible land, and nail-biting moment you capture.
There are 10 categories to choose from, each with their own unique criteria. Whether professional or amateur, choose the ones that suit your images or let the categories inspire you!
