One week until the Red Bull Illume submission window closes

Final call to enter world's largest action & adventure sports photography contest

Your last chance to enter the world's largest action and adventure sports photography contest is rapidly approaching – all submissions must be uploaded to by April 30th.  While thousands of images have already been submitted, the dedicated mission of the Red Bull Illume Image Quest is to leave no incredible image behind – so get your photo submissions in while you can.

Photographers can enter as many as five images in each of the 10 categories so there's no limit to the range of inspirational shots that can be entered, whether they're action, portrait, lifestyle or sequence shots.  See the full list of categories here:

It costs nothing.  Anyone can enter.  The only qualification?  Your images need to be breathtaking.  Whether you're a published pro or an aspiring amateur, now is the time to enter the Red Bull Illume Image Quest.

The images are judged by an international panel of 50 photo editors from prominent media outlets whose task is to select the 50 best shots, including 10 category winners and one overall winner.  The finalist images will then be unveiled in Hong Kong at the end of August before traveling the world as a nighttime exhibition that is seen by thousands across the globe.

More information, including rules and entry details, can be found online at  The submission window closes April 30, 2013.
