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

Find all detailed information here at WBF Photo Award.
