The winners of the Red Bull Illume 2013 action sports photography contest were revealed today in Hong Kong. Six Canadian photographers are among the Top 50 Red Bull Illume Winners, including Paul Bride, whose work has been featured in Photo Life’s June/July edition.
“There are talented photographers and then there are gifted photographers,” said Jym Wilson, senior photo editor at USA Today and one of 50 Red Bull Illume judges. “I saw a lot of talent but also saw some truly gifted photographers. These are not just action photographers but people with great technical and artistic skills.”
The winning images are currently displayed on Hong Kong’s Avenue of Stars, where they will remain for the next three weeks as a free public exhibtion. The Red Bull Illume exhibition will then go to the US before travelling around the world’s capitals and cultural hubs for the next two years as a night-time exhibition.
