You know what they say: ‘all work and no play makes Jack (and Jill) and dull boy (and girl)’. That’s pretty much the main reason you (and two of your uni mates) should enter Red Bull Can You Make It? Australia 2016.

What is RBCYMI, you ask? It’s an adventure competition that challenges the mind, body and – most importantly – the ingenuity of competitors.

The task is simple: reach the final destination in seven days and complete various checkpoints along the way. The team with the most points at the end wins an epic adventure to the USA, care of our mates at Contiki.

The catch? The only currency allowed on RBCYMI is cans of Red Bull. That’s right: you have to trade Red Bull for favours and work your way around the country. No money. No credits cards. Just cans. We told you ingenuity was important.

Competitors from previous years of RBCYMI have exchanged Red Bull for plane tickets, jetboat trips, helicopter flights, accommodation, food, rollercoaster rides and more. So yes, it is possible.

The only question left is: can you make it? We think you can. Make your 1 minute application video today and find out for yourselves.

Need more convincing? Check out the epic story of 2014s winners, the 3 Pigs, who successfully travelled over 2000 kilometres in exchange for around 265 cans of Red Bull.

Red Bull Can You Make It Australia takes place between 15-21 August 2016, and will see 18 teams put their skills to the test. Applications are OPEN NOW and close at 9am on Monday 27 June 2016. Get involved.
