Since 1998 The World Bodypainting Festival (WBF) considered to be the world's most colourful 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:

  • The World Award: Facepainting rules were improved
  • The assistant in the World Award: SFX Bodypainting is allowed to help the whole time
  • World Award in Airbrush is now a one-day competition only
  • There are two new categories:
    • World Award: Camouflage Bodypainting
    • Special Award: Rich Smoky Make-up
  •  We increase the value for the classic category World Award Brush/Sponge
