The Image Quest 2019 is the fifth edition and evolves with two exciting new categories; Best of Instagram by SanDisk and the Moving Image category. Submissions for Best of Instagram by SanDisk are open from 1 – 14 every month from February to June, 2019 with five monthly winners selected by a community vote, while entries for the main contest are open from May 1 to July 31, 2019.

A judging panel of 50 photo editors and digital experts will select 55 Finalists, 11 Category Winners and 1 Overall Winner, to be unveiled at the Winner Award Ceremony in November 2019.

In 2020, all finalist images will travel to capitals and cultural hubs on three continents in parallel as part of the Red Bull Illume Exhibit Tour, providing an unprecedented level of exposure.
