The innovative global competition where art and technology meet to empower a new generation of artists is now open for entries until 8th April 2022. Red Bull Doodle Art encourages creatives to put pencil to paper, let their minds wander and get doodling. Visit RedBullDoodleArt.com to enter or for application event details.
Following the initial application phase, a select group of finalists will be chosen to show their work at the Irish National Final on 15th April. The overall winner for Ireland will be chosen at the National Final by a judging panel and will be invited to the World Final in Amsterdam, where the 2023 Red Bull Doodle Art winner will be chosen by a panel of renowned experts.
Where art and technology meet
The pen-on-paper concept of Red Bull Doodle Art dates back to the very first edition in 2012. Since then, the competition has evolved to include latest technological innovations.
Involving both the physical and digital realms of art, the 2023 edition of Red Bull Doodle Art sees the introduction of NFTs (non-fungible tokens). All participants who submit a valid doodle will have access to a digital collectible of their drawing in the form of an NFT.
The competition takes place across the following phases;
- Application phase: Red Bull Doodle Art begins at one of the four application events, where participating students and creatives will put pen to paper to see where their imagination takes them. Visit www.redbulldoodleart.com for dates and locations of application events. Participants can also submit their doodle digitally or on official Red Bull Doodle Art frame, which all be downloaded and submitted at www.redbulldoodleart.com.
- Selection phase: On 15th April, the work of the chosen finalists will be displayed in an exhibition at Tara Buildings in Dublin. A panel of experts will select the winner based on the criteria of creativity, artistic skill and the way the doodle expresses a love for life.
- Artists’ collaboration phase: After the national final, the new national winner will collaborate with a professional artist to get ready to represent Ireland with an exclusive doodle NFT at the World Final in Amsterdam.
- World Final: From 25 to 28 May 2023, the World Final will bring together all the national finalists globally for a three-day immersive experience in Amsterdam in the Netherlands. This will feature workshops, exclusive “phygital” (physical and digital) creative sessions, public gallery and the announcement of the global winner of Red Bull Doodle Art 2023.
