Red Bull Staged a Photo Contest; of Course the Winners Are Sick AF

As many a telemarketer can attest, Red Bull energy-enhancement beverage is great for motoring-mouthing through a double shift of dubious sales pitches spewed at equally dubious listeners. Aside from that crucial participation in driving the U.S. economy, Red Bull also sponsors a photo contest. Naturally, this competition is not about judging photos of people, animals, and things lumping around doing nothing.

The Red Bull Illume Image Quest is self-described with all the understatement you'd expect from a fluid that makes coffee seem like a soporific as "the world's greatest international photography contest dedicated to action and adventure sports."

Yes, the Red Bull Illume has a website

That's where you can read about a traveling Red Bull Illume exhibition that may arrive quickly to a town near you, and a very energetic coffee-table book positively vibrating with Red Bull Illume photographs.
