Lenovo enables a more inclusive and inspired world for all through smarter technology, so it’s fitting Lenovo should present this year’s Best of Instagram category that opens up the competition to all. Unlike the contest’s nine other categories which are adjudicated by a panel of 50 photo and digital experts from around the world, the finalists and category winners for Best of Instagram by Lenovo are selected through public voting. Each month, from March 1 to July 31, 2021, there will be five still and five moving images pre-selected by an internal jury which are put out to a community vote. The top choices from each month will become official Red Bull Illume Image Quest 2021 Finalists; from these, a final online vote will decide the best still image and the best moving image, to be crowned as Lenovo’s Best of Instagram Category Winners. Anyone can submit their moving or still images on Instagram by tagging @redbullillume and #rbi21submission.
The Overall Winner of Red Bull Illume Image Quest 2021 is selected from all the category winners by the international judging panel. There is a total of 10 categories which are created to truly shine a light on the lifestyle and culture behind today’s professional and amateur content creators and their dedication to the craft. Each edition of the contest brings out a new level of never-seen-before creativity, and this edition is bound to be full of imagery that pushes the boundaries of content creation in adventure and action sports imagery.
Along with receiving well-earned career exposure as an official Red Bull Illume winner, their work will tour the globe, illuminated on huge lightboxes. The winners are also awarded prize packages that include trophies and the latest Lenovo products to power even more creative self-expression. Their work will be included in the official Red Bull Illume photobook and showcased during the winner award ceremony planned for November 2021 and attended by Ulrich Grill, the founder of the Red Bull Illume Image Quest.
“Lenovo is proud to support the sixth edition of Red Bull Illume Image Quest that brings together photographers and content creators whose bold work continually inspires us,” said Matt Bereda, Vice President of Global Consumer Marketing, PCs and Smart Devices, Lenovo. “We see many of our consumer PC, smart home, and tablet customers are passionate hobbyists. They enjoy photography and digital storytelling, and not all of them are paid professionals—they just love capturing and enhancing imagery to share with others and hang on their walls. If this new normal has taught us anything about our world and ourselves, it’s that we’re resilient, our technology is adaptable, and that making meaningful connections with others through shared creative pursuits are the bright spots in life that really matter.”
“Red Bull Illume is like the Oscars of adventure and action sports imagery and we are extremely proud to have Lenovo join the 2021 edition,” said Ulrich Grill, Founder of Red Bull Illume. “This contest honors the creativity and hard work that goes into producing one-of-a-kind imagery and Lenovo gives content creators the tools they need to express their unique ideas.”
