We’re stoked that submissions to the Red Bull Illume Image Quest 2023 are open and we can’t wait to see your shots. What have you got planned for us?


Get inspired, get out there and get shooting – there’s still time to capture a winning shot. Submissions are only open until May 31 for the two Instagram categories and until July 31 for the other eight categories on our website.


For this year’s edition of Red Bull Illume there are two ways to enter.

Enter on our website until July 31, 2023

There are eight categories covering every aspect of the genre from lifestyle to incredible action. There are categories that celebrate artistic innovation and creative post-production as well as raw untouched images. There is also a category for emerging talent up to the age of 25. Images are submitted via redbullillume.com. They then get judged by an international panel of experts. Full category details can be found here.

Enter via Instagram until May 31, 2023

There are two dedicated Instagram categories – Photos of Instagram and Reels of Instagram. Reels is the category for all the videographers out there and is the only category open for video submissions.

Important to know that the Instagram categories are only open this month, and close on May 31. To enter, share a feed post or reel up to 60 seconds on your public Instagram account using the hashtag #rbi23submission and tagging @redbullillume.


The selection process is also a little different. These two Instagram categories are judged by the community via two online votings on redbullillume.com in June.


Red Bull Illume is all about celebrating incredible adventure and action sports imagery and shining the light on the photographers behind the lens. This is your chance to show the world your creativity and be honored at the Winners’ Unveiling, but best of all is the exposure that comes from joining the Red Bull Illume family.

It’s a family that’s always growing, so feel free to reach out to your friends and fans to encourage the next generation of talent to enter as well.
