A-Frame's Chris Burkard Wins Prestigious Red Bull Illume Event

Burkie added yet another feather to his cap this week with his huge win at the Red Bull Illume. Not only is Chris one of the most talented new photographers on the scene today but he's probably the most humble guy in the same space. Chris lets his work speak for itself and these days that voice is getting pretty loud. The Illume event is the world's premier action and adventure sports photography competition and this year the submissions reached a staggering 22,764 images. Those were culled down to 50 finalists and Mr. Burkard came out on top of the pack with his show stopping image of Peter Mendia in a flared out green dream of a tube in Buchupero, Chile.

We couldn't be more proud of Chris and look forward to the massive celebration upon his return. Way to go Burkie!
