In the title compound, C14H14BrN5O3, the mean plane of the imidazole ring (r.m.s deviation = 0.004 Å) forms a dihedral angle of 58.13 (7)° with the benzene ring. In the crystal, mol­ecules are linked via N—H⋯O, C—H⋯O and C—H⋯N hydrogen bonds into a three-dimensional network. A short Br⋯Br contact of 3.4932 (2) Å also occurs.
