Become A Red Bull Reporter

From Red Bull's PR firm:

Red Bull Reporter is a nationwide search to find the best young music & culture, and sports writers, filmmakers, photographers and presenters, giving them the chance of a lifetime: to use their skills and indulge their passions as a Red Bull Reporter.

The most talented young media makers could be selected for one of our many exciting assignments - each designed to give them an amazing experience as a working member of the media - covering world-class sports, cutting-edge music and innovative culture events. What’s more, Red Bull events happen all over the world and we’ll be dispatching Red Bull Reporters out there to cover them!

To enter, budding writers, photographers, filmmakers and presenters upload the best examples for consideration by site users, and the Red Bull Editorial Team.

If selected, a Red Bull Reporter could find themselves travelling on assignment to exciting events in the UK and overseas; or be introduced to an incredible cultural opinion leader, or high profile athlete. Following their assignment, each Red Bull Reporter’s content will be showcased to the world.
