For the world’s top adventure and action sports photographers, as well as photography fans around the world, the wait is almost over. The winners of the Red Bull Illume Image Quest 2021 are about to be revealed.
Over five days beginning next Monday, November 29, we shall start announcing the names of the eleven category winners and their remarkable shots.
Every day we will go live at 6PM and 8PM CET on Instagram to announce two category winners. During the broadcasts we will also be joined by special guests from the world of action sports and photography, including former Red Bull Illume Overall Winner Chris Burkard, world champion snowboarder Anna Gasser, freestyle skier and entrepreneur Jon Olsson, and adventure legend Will Gadd. The winning photographer will also join us live to give their reaction.
Unveiling week kicks off on Monday, November 29, at 6PM when we announce the winners of the Best of Instagram by Lenovo category and then the winner of RAW by Leica two hours later, at 8PM. The rest of the week follows a similar format – every day, two live broadcasts revealing a category winner. On Friday, December 3, we reveal the last of the 11 category winners at 8PM, Energy by Red Bull Photography.
While the category winners are announced from Monday to Friday, the climax of the week is the revealing of the overall winner. That will take place during the opening of the first Red Bull Illume Exhibit Tour Stop in Aspen Snowmass, CO, USA, on Saturday, December 4.
