Umer Nadeem from National College of Arts, Rawalpindi doodles his way to victory and will now represent Pakistan at the Red Bull Doodle Art Global Final 2017 that is scheduled to take place later this year.
From 18 doodles submitted on www.redbulldoodleart.com, 10 doodles were shortlisted based on the number of votes each doodle had received. Once shortlisted, Samya Arif, S.M. Raza, and Saad Irfan, the three judges of the competition, reviewed each of the 10 doodles with the aim to select the best doodle to both represent Pakistan and compete with some of the best doodlers from around the world at the Red Bull Doodle Art Global Final.
After hours of discussion, thought and consideration, the 3 judges crowned “Umer Nadeem” as the ultimate winner. Umer will now head to the global final where National Winners from at least 40 countries will be flown out to a yet to be determined location and participate in creating virtual reality art, which will then be exhibited at a global virtual gallery.
The third global edition of Red Bull Doodle Art 2017 will have an exciting global final: A virtual reality experience. All the national winners will get the unique experience to compete in the global final. They will be coached on how to level up their 3D artistic skills and create their final piece of art by painting in 3D. The final masterpieces will be exhibited at a Global Virtual Gallery, where art lovers can fully experience doodles in virtual reality from around the world! The global winner will be chosen by a panel of judges.
