Can I submit to more than one category?
Yes, you can submit to as many categories as you like. Just make sure you choose the best category for your image, because the categories are quite important in the judges’ decision. It’s also important to know that you can only enter the same photo into two categories, which brings us to the next question…
How many photos can I enter?
You can enter 10 photos per category on redbullillume.com and 10 images per month on Instagram for the Best of Instagram by Lenovo category.
Can I edit my images?
Basic editing and color correction are allowed, such as adjusting the brightness, contrast, sharpness, or mood. If you want to try some crazier editing, you need to check out the Creative by Skylum category.
Can I submit images from my smartphone?
All adventure and action sports images that are 12 megapixels and larger can be entered, as long as you stick to the category’s requirements. Think you’ve got a gram-worthy, scroll-stopping image? Check out the Best of Instagram by Lenovo category and submit your work.
When do the images need to be taken?
All images taken after July 31, 2019, are accepted for the Red Bull Illume Image Quest 2021.
Can I enter images of fishing / golf / horse riding?
Red Bull Illume celebrates images that capture the adventure and action sports lifestyle and culture that happens in the mountains, wild places and at sea. Currently this means it excludes images of traditional sports, team sports such as football, and motor sports such as MotoGP. But motorcross is allowed.
How do I submit a video?
You can submit videos of up to 60 seconds to the Best of Instagram by Lenovo category on Instagram. All you need is to share the video on your Feed and use #rbi21submission and tag @redbullillume in the caption. Make sure that your profile is public, otherwise we won’t be able to see your work.
