Red Bull are running a nationwide initiative to find the best budding music, culture and sports writers, filmmakers, photographers and presenters, offering them the chance of a lifetime – to use their skills and indulge their passions as a 'Red Bull Reporter' and have their work published and showcased to the world.
The most talented young media-makers could be selected for one of a number of exciting assignments – each designed to give them an amazing experience as a working member of the media – covering world-class sport, cutting-edge music and innovative culture events. Better yet, Red Bull events happen all around the globe – meaning reporters will be dispatched out there to cover them!
The first assignment for which a reporter is being sought is the British round of the hotly-contested World Rally Championship (WRC), Wales Rally GB – with a unique opportunity to interview legendary reigning four-time world champion Sébastien Loeb, a man who enters the event sitting just one point behind Ford rival Mikko Hirvonen in the standings in his bid to make it a record-breaking five titles in succession. With the prospect for the weekend that of winner-takes-all, a thrilling, nail-biting finale is surely in-store.
The interview will take place ahead of the rally on Thursday, 22 October, and the winner will be a flexible, young writer who is prepared to put in some research on the Frenchman and the world of rally driving in general to produce a series of questions to ask Loeb in the one-on-one interview.
The selected winner will also receive a privileged pass to gain access to the service and hospitality area in Cardiff Bay on Saturday, 24 October, to witness first-hand the frantic work carried out on the cars in-between stages.
