Our Student Bodypainting category looks to the world of theatre for inspiration and entrants will create a design that takes this to another level.  Judged once again by Jennie Roberts from Paintopia, we’re looking for exceptional work, either brush and sponge or airbrush, combined with costume, headpiece and innovative use of props.

 

Judges are looking for interpretation of theme, application, uses of adornment to enhance work and technique, as well as marking the design for the face and consideration for fellow competitors.  Disciplines allowed: airbrush, brush and sponge combined (you may use all or any these).  Stencils are permitted, but only for up to 15% of the overall design.  Nude painting is prohibited, and models must wear suitable protective underwear and professional standard nipple covers.Mood boards are compulsory, making up 10% of the overall marks, and must be no larger in size than A3.
