World Bodypainting Festival 2012 Wows Fans

The Austrian town of Pörtschach came alive this year at the 2012 World Bodypainting Festival. From July 2-8, 2012, participants from 42 nations gathered in the town, located on Lake Wörthersee, to showcase their skills and entertain a crowd of thousands. Sponsored by Kryolan, Snazaroo, Superstar, Skinpainter Magazin and others, the World Bodypainting Festival included a night contest for UV make-up effects; more than 40 different workshops, demos and lectures; a large exhibition area and market; the return of Bodypaint City TV and WBF Fashion Park; and the Body Art Fashion Show.

The main highlights, of course, were the competitions and awards. Below are the top three winners in each competition category. Following the images is a review video produced by the World Bodypainting Festival, which make-up artist Scott Fray called "the Olympics of body painting."
