Red Bull Illume Image Quest 2016

Red Bull Illume is the world’s greatest international photography contest dedicated to action and adventure sports. It showcases the most creative and captivating photography on the planet as art and aims to bring the public closer to the world of action sports. Red Bull Illume Image Quest 2016 is the fourth edition of the contest after 2007, 2010 and 2013. New for the 2016 edition is the Mobile category.

The Red Bull Illume Image Quest 2016 saw 5.645 photographers from 120 countries submitting a record-breaking 34.624 images. A judging panel of 53 photo editors selected 55 finalists, 11 Category Winners and one Overall Winner, which were unveiled at the Red Bull Illume Winner Award Ceremony on September 28, 2016 in Chicago, USA. German photographer Lorenz Holder took the top spot for the second time running with his atmospheric shot of athlete Senad Grosic riding his BMX across a bridge in autumnal Germany.

All finalist images will travel across the world until mid 2018 as part of the Red Bull Illume Exhibit Tour – a unique nighttime outdoor photo exhibition. Official partners for the 2016 Image Quest include Japanese consumer electronics giant Sony, online retailer Yodobashi, external storage brand G-Technology and lighting experts broncolor.
