Thanks to our unique network we are able to offer programs of the world's leading artists at the WBF and offer also tailored workshops in many languages around the world.

Many thanks to the intense participation of members from the World Bodypainting Association in the discussion about the assistant role in 2014. Its not possible to satisfy everybody, but we found a fair basis. The guidelines should support individual talents and should allow to get some support from an assistant within the strict time limits. A very important aspect is to keep the rules easy to understand for everybody.
Here are all relevant information for artists in the contests:

We had for the third time the opportunity to produce a weird, crazy, stupid but very fun video clip.
After the World Bodypainting Festival in July the "WB Production" team and friends were still in a drive of creativity. Ruppert Hirner gave us his Bungee Crew and facility, that is only available on one weekend every year in this special location, the 200 m high dam "Kölnbreinsperre".
A colourful spirit, who was only by himself, infected his quiet surrounding for a more exciting life. The video is about the beautiful nature of our home in Carinthia, in the south of Austria. The World Bodypainting Festival gave more colours, more creativity, simply more fun and freedom to that home.
Overview of activities in 2014
Of course we are long not ready to publish the detailed program for 2014, but we put an overview for now together that gives you an idea about the full World Bodypainting Festival week. There are again a lot of new highlights like for example PINK, the "Global Bodypainting Conference" and an extended WB Academy or for on the main days the new Creative Make-up Award and the Installation Art Award to mention a few.
The World Bodypainting Festival is introducing in 2014 a new category for Make-up Artists. We are working on the details for the "Creative Make-up Award", which is going to be organized on the Festival final day, Sunday July 6th. The award is also supported by MIA Brushes by Einat Dan.
We had announced some changes for the World Facepainting Award before, but due to capacaty and feedbacks from Bodypainting Artists, we are going back to the old format. The Facepainting Category is set as in the past years on one day, Saturday the 5 July. Participants who registered already can of course apply also for the Facepainting Award.
