The requirements to be a model at the WBF are:
Before the main days, are many workshops held in small groups. A very special and small atmosphere is in these workshops with the world's best educators that paint a demo model.
For 25 years now the World Bodypainting Festival has been gathering talents from around the world and provides a platform to present artistic values on the highest level. We love to award besides artists and photographers also models and performers. The community around the WBF is quite varied and comes from different backgrounds, often they have full-time jobs such as teachers, hairdressers, receptionists or office workers amongst other professions. Models and performers transform to bring the art and the story of the artist to life.
Being a bodypainting model is a very special experience, but also a very tough one. Preparing a show, becoming a character, and rehearsing. Standing for many hours, posing for the judging and numbers of photographers and in the end performing on the stage. The world of bodypainting appreciates the huge afford that models are giving. Since 2002 we are awarding the “World Bodypainting Model of the Year” and this year we are happy to award the amazing Alana Karah from Luxembourg!
A multi-talent, she participated in many projects with different photographers and artists and for the last years remarkably performed on the stage in the World Championship category “Team Show Award” together with the german team Claudia Kraemer and Enrico Lein and both times they become World Champions! The number of amazing images we have from her, not only this year but also many years back in the WBF history, are just outstanding.
