US photographer Will Saunders has been crowned overall winner of the Red Bull Illume Image Quest 2021 with his photograph of a climber falling at Indian Creek, USA. Italian photographer Thomas Monsorno won the Innovation by EyeEm category with his photo of Dani Arnold on Lake Baikal in Siberia. Federico Ravassard was selected as a finalist in the Playground by WhiteWall category for his photo of Marzio Nardi climbing in the marble quarries at Carrara.

One of the world's most prestigious contests for adventure and action sports photography, the Red Bull Illume 2021, was won on Saturday night by US photographer Will Saunders for his photo of Jake Talley falling from a route at Indian Creek, USA. Saunders' photograph was selected by a panel of 53 judges who had the immense task of looking at 41,447 photographs. In addition to the honour of winning this sort of Pulitzer photography, Saunders takes home a selection of prizes worth € 50,000.

During the awards ceremony at Aspen, USA, the winners of the 11 categories were also celebrated. These include the Innovation by EyeEm category won by Italian photographer Thomas Monsorno for his drone photo taken in February 2020 of Swiss alpinist Dani Arnold "climbing" across frozen Lake Baikal in Siberia.

Italian photographer Federico Ravassard was one of only 7 finalists in the Playground by WhiteWall category with his photo of Marzio Nardi climbing in a marble quarry in Carrara, taken while filming the documentary Carie. Philipp Klein Herrero won Photo Story category for his ingenious stop motion freeride skiing film created during the Coronavirus emergency.
