RED BULL TUM TUM PA - AUSTRALIAN WINNERS ANNOUNCED!!
The Australian Final of the Red Bull Tum Tum Pa competition has just wrapped up and we're excited to announce the winning team, who will be representing Australia, in the Red Bull Tum Tum Pa World Final, in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil in June this year.
Congratulations to the winning team from University of New South Wales (UNSW)!! Their team name Hitty Hitty Bang Bang was certainly a hit! Team members Claire Allen, Joel Richardson, Miriam Binskin and Murray James drummed, tapped and banged their way through to the Australian final and just beat out contenders from Griffith University (Gold Coast) in Queensland to win their way to Brazil!
The team performed a cover and an orginal composition using nothing but pieces of stationery. A roll of sticky tape, pens, a wad of post-it notes, a stapler, hole puncher and a bunch of empty Red Bull cans were their chosen 'instruments'.
Teams were judged based on three criteria: creativity, rhythmn and how they wowed the crowds. They edged out their competition with their originality, creativeness, enthusiasm and performance flare for all things stationery.
As the major prize winners, the team will be flown to Brazil to compete against 45 other university teams from around the world. Congratulations to UNSW's Hitty Hitty Bang Bang!
