Finale in Salzburg

Red Bull Illume at Hangar-7

The unique Red Bull Illume Exhibition Tour is returning home for its last stop.

The world's leading international photo competition for action and adventure sports will make its fourth and final European stop this year at Salzburg's Hangar-7.

The Red Bull Illume Exhibition Tour has travelled the world – from Hong Kong to the USA, then on to Canada, Germany, Denmark and Sweden – and will return to its home in Austria from 11 December 2014 to 15 February 2015 (closed from 23 December 2014 to 2 January 2015) to wow the Salzburg public with its large, lifelike and illuminated works of art.

Visitors to the legendary Hangar-7 at Salzburg airport will have the chance to marvel at the competition's top 50 pictures free of charge every evening. This unique building not only houses Formula 1 cars and the historic Flying Bulls aircraft – the 2x2-metre lightboxes blend into the glass scenery just as seamlessly as the shiny racing cars.
The pictures remain covered until sunset. It is not until after dark that the unique works of art are unveiled and lit up. The pictures capture the moment particularly well when illuminated, making joy, pain, speed, sporting performance and physical effort seem almost tangible to the beholder.

The top 50 pictures were selected by an international panel of photo editors and presented to the public for the first time at the Red Bull Illume tour stop in Hong Kong. The overall winner of the competition was Munich's Lorenz Holder for his impressive photo of a snowboarder shot against the backdrop of a giant satellite dish. The German photographer's reward was a Leica S camera, a broncolor Move outdoor light kit and a selection of Sun-Sniper equipment – a package worth more than 30,000 euros.

The ten category winners are: Scott Serfas (Illumination), Daniel Vojtech (New Creativity), Romina Amato (Energy), Chris Burkard (Spirit), Morgan Maassen (Lifestyle by Leica), Jeroen Nieuwhuis (Close up) Zakary Noyle (Sequence), Lorenz Holder (winner of the two categories Playground and Experimental) and Samo Vidic (Wings).
