KUSA - The Red Bull Illume is the world's largest international photography competition dedicated to adventure and action sports.

Entrants from all over the world submitted images which were narrowed down to 250 in June and judged by experts and photo editors from 50 international media outlets. 

In August, the top 50 photos were enlarged and revealed in 'illuminated' giant cubes in Hong Kong where they still remain on display until now.

One of the photographers whose work was picked is based right here in Denver. Dave Lehl was selected to be in the top 50 by international judges and photo editors. 

They have not nailed down a Denver date for the exhibit but it is possible that they will add it to the tour. The first stop will be in Atlanta next month. 

Those who cannot attend in person can still check out the top pictures at the illume website or can buy a collector's edition book which features all 250 images.
