If you need to pass parameters to a <c:import> tag, use the <c:url> tag to create the URL first as shown below:

<%@ taglib uri="http://java.sun.com/jsp/jstl/core" prefix="c" %>
<title><c:redirect> Tag Example</title>
<c:redirect url="http://www.photofuntoos.com"/>

Above example would redirect request to http://www.photofuntoos.com - Try it yourself.
