Red Bull Illume exibit tour stop in Hangar-7

The winning entries from the world’s greatest adventure and action sports imagery contest are to be exhibited at Salzburg’s famous Hangar-7, from March 10 until May 8, 2022.

Red Bull Illume Exhibition is returning to Salzburg, Austria! The winning images from the Image Quest 2021 will all be on display from March 10 until May 8, 2022, inside the extraordinary Hangar-7, the famous home to historic aircraft and Formula 1 cars. However, this isn’t the first time the iconic venue has hosted a tour stop, because it’s already welcomed fans to find inspiration for many editions.

The winners were announced during the one-of-a-kind Unveiling Week in December 2021 and their images are now going on a global tour in the Red Bull Illume Exhibition. It’s the perfect way to honor the hard work and dedication of these photographers and is a fantastic showcase of their talent. The exhibit features the 56 finalist images on innovative 2x2 meter lightboxes provided by the German based manufacturer CCS Fabric Frame. The outstanding quality truly presents the images the way in which they should be enjoyed.

The Red Bull Illume Exhibition is not only a great idea for a day out but is also an opportunity to visit Hangar-7 and enjoy the dynamic architecture. It truly is a fascinating space and creates a unique atmosphere, constructed with lots of glass so you can enjoy beautiful panoramic views of the Alps – the perfect backdrop for the world’s greatest adventure and action sports images. The entire experience provides a window into the world of these photographers and the lengths they are willing to go to get the perfect shot. The unique exhibition is free to visit and is open daily from March 10 until May 8, 2022, during Hangar-7’s usual opening hours of 9AM to 10PM.

Last year’s edition was won by Will Saunders, an American photographer who earned the Overall Winner prize for his shot of climber, Jake Talley, striking a pose while taking a lead fall on a spectacular rock tower in Indian Creek, Utah. His was one of 41,447 entries submitted to last year’s Red Bull Illume Image Quest, from which 56 finalist images were selected by an international judging panel of 53 photo and industry experts.

This is just one of the stops of the Indoor Exhibition that is touring Europe, so keep your eyes peeled and calendars open because the best adventure and action sports images will also visit countries such as Croatia, Slovenia, and Italy!

It showcases the most creative and captivating images on the planet, while illuminating the passion, lifestyle and culture behind the photographers that shoot them. To be crowned overall winner of Red Bull Illume is considered the highest honor among adventure and action sports photographers.

The Image Quest 2021 is the sixth edition bringing together the amazing work of photographers and content creators from around the world. Submissions for the global contest were open from March 01 to August 01, 2021, and were entered on and on Instagram while tagging @redbullillume and #rbi21submission.

A judging panel of 53 renowned photo editors and photo experts reviewed a total of 41,447 submissions, narrowing down the selection in five voting rounds to reach 256 semi-finalists, 56 finalists, 11 category winners, and ultimately, the overall winner of Red Bull Illume Image Quest 2021.
