The photo contest, “World Bodypainting Photo Award“
Since 21 years the photo competition is a big part of the World Bodypainting Festival. We award in 2 categories the best images done in that year. Since we are getting more and more images in the photo competition that are showing beautiful make-up, stylings or fashion, we would like to change the categories of the WBF Photo Award.
There are going to be 2 award categories:
- Best Bodypainting Photo
- Fashion & Portrait Photo
