Best of Instagram by Lenovo

The submissions for Best of Instagram by Lenovo will be judged every month, first by an internal Red Bull Illume jury who will select the top 5 still and 5 moving images, which will be official Red Bull Illume Semi-finalists.
These will be put to a community vote on redbullillume.com, resulting in 1 monthly winner for still and 1 for moving image.
The monthly winners will automatically become official Red Bull Illume Finalists. In total there will be 5 still and 5 moving image finalists - out of these, the public will decide who is crowned as the Best of Instagram by Lenovo Category Winners. This category is especially for content that’s so cool you have to stop scrolling and check it out.
