These are the June Finalists for the Best of Instagram by Lenovo category which have been selected by the community.

The photo that goes through as a finalist into the main Red Bull Illume contest is Wang Wei Chih's underwater shot of a free diver jumping from the edge of an underwater cliff.

The moving image finalist for June is Bruno Cavalcante who shot a video of longboarder Sara Watanabe cruising Rio de Janeiro’s Flamengo Park.

These images are officially in the running to become the category winners, voted by the community out of all five photo and five moving image finalists in August.

I am an underwater photographer from Taiwan. Since I first came into contact with the camera in 2018, I have been taking underwater photos. The subjects are all about documenting freedivers. Underwater photography is a part of my life,Records the connection between free divers and nature, looking for a window of dialogue between the soul and nature.

I'm a video maker from Rio de Janeiro who started making skateboarding movies just for fun, which ended up becoming a profession. Today I am a publicist and work with films and photographs. I love directing photography within the film world and I am grateful to skateboarding for having made me gain knowledge in the practice of cinema.
