Since 1998 The World Bodypainting Festival (WBF) considered to be the world's most colorful festival, has taken place every year in the south of Austria. This year again, we expect up to 30.000 visitors in the open-air art park 'Bodypaint City.” Visitors will be able to see and experience wonderful works by artists from 50 nations worldwide.

The WBF is committed to evolve and grow yearly, in doing so we made a few improvements to the event.


What is new in Bodypaint City:

  • One new Bodypainting Special Award: Team Category on Saturday
  • World Award: Special Effects Bodypainting is on the final day Sunday only.
  • One new Make-up category, the "Purple Brush Award"
  • Please check the timetable, as the time for some categories has changed.
  • Please read carefully the assistant rules in each category!
