The winners of the Red Bull Illume action sports photography competition have been revealed. 

Red Bull Illume is the world's largest action sports photography competition, and out of 50 finalists, 10 category winners and one overall winner have been announced. The competition takes place every three years, and this year recieved nearly 30,000 entires.

German photographer Lorenz Holder was crowned Overall Winner for his remarkable shot of a snowboarder next to a giant satellite dish. As Overall Winner, Holder received a Leica S camera, a broncolor Move Outdoor kit and Sun-Sniper gear — a prize worth over €30,000 in total. He also won the Experimental category.

"The quality of the images in the Top 50 was amazing, so for me it is a great honour to be voted number one. It’s so unreal. It will take a few days for the news to sink in," said Lorenz Holder, Overall Winner 2013.

"There are talented photographers and then there are gifted photographers," said Jym Wilson, senior photo editor at USA Today and one of 50 Red Bull Illume judges. "I saw a lot of talent but also saw some truly gifted photographers. These are not just action photographers but people with great technical and artistic skills".

Images from the top 50 finalists are currently on display in Hong Kong for three weeks, before they embark on a tour of the world's capitals over the next two years as a unique night time exhibition. 

For more information and to see more of the winning images, take a look at the Red Bull Illume website.
