The Red Bulletin - The International Men's Active Lifestyle Magazine
Every month The Red Bulletin features breathtaking sports, culture, music, nightlife, entrepreneurship and lifestyle stories. The focus is on exceptional personalities who accomplish extraordinary achievements, move beyond the norm, test their limits, and passionately seek adventures, while breaking new ground - exactly as the readers of The Red Bulletin do.

They prefer an urban lifestyle, enjoy traveling and love to get to know different cultures. Furthermore, they are very brand conscious and interested in all topics related to cars and technology.
Editorial concept - beyond the ordinary
The men's active lifestyle magazine is a monthly magazine published by Red Bull Media House Publishing GmbH, whose headquarters are in Vienna, Austria. Editorial content is controlled and designed from Vienna in close collaboration with local editors. The Red Bulletin offers wide range of global content, while also featuring national interests.
The journalistic approach is based on the idea of visual storytelling. With unique and exciting stories from around the world, in tandem with fascinating, exclusive photos and design, The Red Bulletin creates true reading pleasure of the highest standards.
The editorial team is essential to the quality of the magazine. As a result, The Red Bulletin constantly strives to feature the world's best photographers and writers, for example:
- Michael Muller: Although the American predominantly shoots Hollywood stars for The Red Bulletin, his first published photo was of a snowboarder. So he was perfectly at home shooting a cover with ski star Lindsey Vonn.
- Krystle Wright: The Australian is a world-famous adventure photographer, whose job has made an extreme sportswoman of her. Her hobbies include freediving and climbing.
- Jim Krantz: A student of the legendary Ansel Adams, Krantz fascinates with the breadth of his subjects - from photographs of cowboys for a Marlboro campaign to celebrities and high-speed reportage.
- Simon Kuper: The award-winning British author names football and sport in general as his specialties. His book Football Against the Enemy was British Sports Book of the Year in 1994.
- Marcel Anders: The music journalist from Munich has already interviewed half the members of the Rock'n'Roll Hall of Fame - the other half is on his list.
- Daniel Kehlmann: The German-language novelist (Measuring the World) is one of several famous writers who've contributed short stories to The Red Bulletin. Others include Norway's cult crime writer Jo Nesbø and US author James Grady (Shadow of the Condor).
- Rüdiger Sturm: The Munich-based German movie journalist is close to many of the directors - like Oliver Stone - and Hollywood stars - like Matt Demon - and is a contributor to publications like DER SPIEGEL and DIE WELT as well. Sturm impresses not only because of his knowledge on movies but has created some for his own.
The magazine content is divided into the following concept categories:
- Bullevard: fast-paced introduction to the magazine with breathtaking photography and innovative content. The surprising entry into the world of adventurers, with tips and examples from which readers can learn.
- Features: sports, adventure, art and music business - outstanding characters provide amazing interviews and compelling stories of what inspires them and how they have managed to stand out from the crowd. These personalities tell the readers what inspires them and what "gives them wings".
- Action! Service journalism at its finest. Life has so many facets - those who cannot get enough of it will find new kicks beyond the ordinary on reader-focused topics such as travel, training, music, film, photography, gaming, technology, nightlife and much more.
