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 thousands of 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:

  • We improved the evaluation in the Creative Make-up Category
    New deadlines:
  • In order to tell to the audience more about your work, we ask you to provide us a couple of sentences about your idea prior the competition.
  • We also ask to send us your music, in order to be have less troubles on site with non-working media.

Why no UV Award in 2019?

Dear artists, we have decided to skip in 2018 the World Award Category UV Effects.

There are several reasons; the biggest ones are the problems with the light and security.

  • For security reasons we are not allowed to switch all lights off that are needed for a beautiful UV presentation. Especially in front of the stage its impossible as its very packed with spectators. Laws changed a lot in the last years and on the other side it’s a too bigger security risk.
  • And we are not able to make it as dark as we wanted it. The street lights near the festival grounds are disturbing the UV effects.
    We have an alternative. Of course we want to see great team shows on stage, so we upgraded the Bodypainting Team Category to a “World Award” category. The team category includes now also the judging of the performance, just like the UV Award.

I please ask for understanding, in future we try to find an indoor location near the festival grounds and want to have a separate show for the UV category.
