Red Bull Canimation Contest for Talented Animators

Red Bull is looking for supremely talented animators to show what they can do.

Red Bull Canimation is a hunt for creative talent, and it’s open to anyone who’s passionate about animation, regardless of experience. The only rule is that Red Bull’s blue and silver can needs to take centre stage. After that, you’re free to be as imaginative and adventurous as you like!

Get involved and see how Red Bull can give your creativity wings. If you’re a student you could win monthly internships in famous animation studios, as for the general public, there will be animation software and hardware prizes to be won.
