The contest’s overall winner, top 10 category winners, and the top 50 finalists will be announced on August 29th in Hong Kong during a special ceremony specifically for the Red Bull Illume.
Out of the 28,257 images submitted, the 50 winning entries will be made available in high-res formats for the media.
