Just who would be a better judge of sports and adventure photography than Red Bull? More than just the world's most popular energy drink, Red Bull has aggressively marketed itself so that the brand name is synonymous with extreme sports and daring stunts. In fact, who doesn't remember skydiver Paul Steiner showing us what a connecting flight truly means? The images were unforgettable.
Red Bull is back with their fantastic photography contest, called Red Bull Illume, revealing a list of 50 finalists as well as their winners. As you will see, each of the ten category winners, shown below, represent an "extremely" unique view of an action or adventure sport that will inspire you to push your own limits both as a photographer and as a sportsman (or sportswoman).
