Red Bull Global taking creative art across the globe


A pen, paper, and your imagination are all you need as Red Bull Doodle Art is calling out all creatives to join their global doodle art competition. The participant whose doodle is selected will represent South Africa at the World Final in Amsterdam.

Red Bull Doodle Art will host a series of workshops at application events around the country, including the Free State, where participating students and creatives will put pen on paper to see where their imagination takes them.

According to a press release by Red Bull, participants can submit their doodle digitally or on the official Red Bull Doodle Art frame, which can all be downloaded and submitted at

“Red Bull Doodle Art is open to everyone 18 years of age and older who is a current resident of South Africa. To take part in Red Bull Doodle Art, go to the official website, select your country, download the template and submit your doodle or visit to see where and when your local application events are taking place,” they said.

The application window is now open until 11 March 2023.

Furthermore, it states that all participants who submit a valid doodle will have access to a digital collectible in the form of an NFT on the Polygon blockchain.

National winners are said to not only receive digital collectibles but will be awarded a unique finalist’s digital collectible to commemorate the honor. All NFTs will be available to claim for free via a custom blockchain wallet for participants.

“The experience as a winner was out of this world, travelling to San Francisco to meet other creatives and create art in a virtual form was mind-blowing. I learned so many things such as communication skills and different cultures that affect design. Overall I learned how to be me, how to be unique, to challenge myself and defeat the norm,” said South Africa 2017 Red Bull Doodle Art winner, Sabastien Pillay.
