The Best of Instagram by Lenovo category is for photos and moving images up to 60 seconds submitted on the Instagram Feed - the images present the most gram-worthy moments of adventure and action sports. Stuff so cool we have to stop and check it out.
Photographers and content creators from all around the world submitted their best work until August 1, 2021 via the hashtag #rbi21submission on Instagram.
The submissions for this category have been judged every month, first by an internal Red Bull Illume jury who selected the top 5 still and 5 moving images, which are official Red Bull Illume Semi-Finalists. These have been put to a community vote on redbullillume.com, resulting in 1 monthly winner for photo and 1 for moving image. The monthly winners automatically became official Red Bull Illume Finalists.
In total there are 5 photo and 5 moving image finalists - out of these, the public had the opportunity to choose who will be crowned as the Best of Instagram by Lenovo Category Winners. Wait, winners… plural? That’s right, there are two winners for Best of Instagram by Lenovo; one for photo and one for moving image. It’s a really big deal, because becoming a category winner of Red Bull Illume not only earns them worldwide exposure, credibility and prestige, but also a ton of incredible prizes and of course, the coveted trophy.
The voting took place from August 25 to 29 at 11:59pm CEST and is closed now.
Below you can see the monthly finalists of Best of Instagram by Lenovo who already earned their spot in the photobook and in the global exhibition. The category winners will be announced together with all the category winners of the Red Bull Illume Image Quest 2021 at the end of this year.
