Today, in honor of Red Bull’s Illume competition, COOPH has shared an incredibly inspirational video that serves as a ’ tribute to the photographers who travel the planet in their unrelenting pursuit of the perfect shot.’
The two-and-a-half minute video shows a collection of still shots that have been submitted to previous years of the competition. In it, COOOPH shares an inspirational message via a narrator, who insists the action sports photographers are as crazy and daring as the athletes themselves.
Red Bull’s Illume photo competition is free to enter and will be taking submissions through March 31st, meaning you still have a couple of weeks to get your photos in.
The prizes given out are valued at well over $100,000, meaning there’s lots of chances to get your hands on the latest and greatest gear if you win any of the multiple categories.
As the video points out, the contest is dedicated to action and adventure sports and is seeking out ’the most creative and captivating photography on the planet as art and aims to bring the public closer to the world of action sports.’
Below are a collection of the still photographs shown in the video:
You can sign up and submit your photos for free on Redbull’s website.
