The Red Bull Doodle Art creative competition for the best doodle art opened its doors to young creatives in Bosnia and Herzegovina in January, with a chance for their art to take them all the way to Amsterdam and the opportunity to collaborate with world-renowned artists such as Mr Doodle. Over almost three months and four fantastic workshops held in Tuzla, Sarajevo, Zenica, and Široki Brijeg, the competition received a staggering 1,448 entries.
Doodle art is a form of art that has become increasingly popular in recent years, and the Red Bull Doodle Art competition is one of the most exciting events for young artists in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The competition was open to anyone aged 18-35, regardless of their level of experience or education. The only requirement was to have a passion for doodling and a desire to create something truly unique and inspiring.
The jury had the difficult task of selecting the best works from the hundreds of submissions. After much deliberation, the winners were announced, and the prizes were awarded. The second prize was awarded to a talented Refika Agbabić, our very own IBU student. Her work was a stunning example of the creativity and skill that the competition sought to encourage.
"This year I decided to apply for the Red Bull Doodle Art national competition, and I directed my artwork to represent everything that Red Bull truly is - adrenaline, pushing new limits, and most importantly, spreading energy. I found inspiration for this piece within myself as well as Red Bull and its activities. I believe that our minds are our greatest wings. I transformed my words and energy into a work of art in the shape of the product can itself. During almost three months and four great workshops held in Tuzla, Sarajevo, Zenica, and Siroki Brijeg, the competition received as many as 1,448 submitted works, and I took second place in the competition." says Refika.
The Red Bull Doodle Art competition was an incredible opportunity for young artists in Bosnia and Herzegovina to showcase their talent and creativity. The competition not only provided a platform for young artists to display their work, but it also gave them the opportunity to learn from experienced artists and collaborate with other creatives.
