It’s official! Red Bull Illume, the greatest action sports photography contest, will be back on in 2013. Submissions open in December so there’s plenty of time to plan and capture that winning shot. More information will become available soon. But in the meantime, to get you inspired, we’ve been revisiting the archives and will post a shot from the last competition every week on our Facebook fanpage.
We were going through the archive the other day and were reminded of just what an amazing and vast number of incredible images there are. Tens of thousands of shots are submitted to each competition and from these, 250 are selected for judging before the final 50 finalists are chosen. As you can imagine, the judges have a difficult job and a lot of great images sadly don’t go through!
So we have decided to honor some of these entries and provide a bit of inspiration at the same time. Hopefully these posts will get you thinking once again about your own winning shot…
We kick off the series with the shot above from the Energy category by Dominic Zimmermann.
