The Red Bull Illume Exhibit Tour is now going stateside to the great US of A! The world's greatest collection of action and adventure sports photography will illuminate Downtown Houston’s Discovery Green beginning January 7. Red Bull Illume will be on view from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. every evening through January 17.
Red Bull Illume is a photography contest and exhibition dedicated to finding and celebrating the world's most outstanding and premium adventure sports images. The winners are chosen by an international jury of experts. By illuminating the passion, thrilling lifestyle and culture behind the winning shots, we honor the photographers who brave the world's harshest terrains to take them. Photography categories include culture, playground, energy, spirit, close up, wings, sequence, new creativity, experimental and illumination.
The 50 selected photos come to life each night via state of the art, large-scale, back-lit screens.
"Red Bull Illume is such an amazing event," says the winner of this year’s contest Chris Burkard (USA). "The photos look completely surreal illuminated and printed so big. I feel honored to have been a part of it."
Red Bull Illume is arguably the world’s greatest collection of action and adventure sports photography. After attending the Unveiling in Dublin, judge Nick Hamilton from Transworld Snowboarding is delighted that US photography fans also will have the chance to see the exhibition. "Red Bull Illume is unmatched for action sports photography. Truly incredible images. People are just going to be floored in amazement when they see them exhibited at night."
