Al'issue d' une cérémonie des plus pompeuses à Chicago, les gagnants de ce Red Bull Illume Awards 2016 furent annoncés. Tous les trois ans, le taureau rouge nous gratifie de ce concours photo unique, qui non seulement fait ressortir le talent de nombreux photographes du milieu, mais en plus leur accorde une enveloppe des plus coquette: $100,000 en nouveau matos flambant.

Pour ce contest photo maousse costaud, Red Bull a reçu quelques 34,000 images. Il y a d'abord eu un gros cut effectué pour n'en conserver que 275, qui furent présentées à un panel de 50 juges issues de respectables publications du milieu du snow (dont nous faisions partie, oui).

Snowboard et photographie ont toujours fait bon ménage. D'abord, le milieu dans lequel nous évoluons est il faut le dire plutôt photogénique. Ensuite le snowboard lui-même est aussi créatif que le monde de la photo. Preuve en est avec l'image gagnante de l'édition 2013, propriété de l'incroyable Lorenz Holder.

Voici donc la dernière sélection de l'année, catégorie par catégorie. Attention, ça pique les yeux, pour de vrai!
