This week, a collection of the world’s best action sports photography will illuminate Vancouver’s Jack Poole Plaza. Showcasing the most exciting action/adventure sports photography from around the world, the Top 50 images of the 2013 Red Bull Illume contest will be on display outdoors each night after dusk from January 31 – February 8, 2014 in illuminated 2m x 2m light boxes.
Canada’s most talented photographers received accolades at the international photography contest, including Vancouver’s own Scott Serfas who won first place in the ‘Illumination’ category for his photo of professional snowboarder Travis Rice. B.C based photographers Jussi Grznar, Sterling Lorence and Dan Carr were also among the finalists.
The Red Bull Illume exhibit will be completely free and open to the public. An international traveling exhibit in itself, Red Bull Illume’s Vancouver stop will be the only one on Canadian soil.
