Red Bull Illume is the world’s greatest adventure and action sports imagery contest. It showcases the most creative and captivating images on the planet, while illuminating the passion, lifestyle and culture behind the photographers that shoot them.

The Image Quest 2019 was the fifth edition and has evolved with two exciting new categories; Best of Instagram by SanDisk and the Moving Image category. In 2019, a record-breaking 59,551 images were submitted by thousands of photographers with entries from all around the world. A judging panel of 50 photo editors and digital experts have selected the 60 Finalists, 11 Category Winners and 1 Overall Winner, which were unveiled at the Winner Award Ceremony at the LUMEN - Museum of Mountain Photography, Plan de Corones, Italy on November 20, 2019.

After the unveiling, all finalist images travel to capitals and cultural hubs on three continents in parallel on the Red Bull Illume Exhibit Tour – an unprecedented level of exposure.




The finalist images will be exhibited on 2x2m lightboxes for the first time ever in Bruneck at the Rathausplatz / town hall square. 

Following the stop at LUMEN, the exhibition will travel to Brunico-Bruneck, Italy, also known as the heart of the Pustertal Valley. The images will be illuminated at the town hall square after dark from December 19, 2019 until January 6, 2020. Visitors can get in the festive mood at the Bruneck Christmas market, and combine this with a unique look at the 60 finalists that were chosen by 50 esteemed judges out of 59,551 submissions, that make up this stunning experience.
