The International BODY PAINTING CONTEST is an important festival event, of which the reputation has spread far beyond our borders. The BODY PAINTING contest will use the same original theme as last year. One again, the candidates will transform their models into LIVING PAINTINGS, inspired by famous paintings (classical or contemporary, all the choices are allowed): you’ll see their world famous paintings come alive on human bodies. The contest takes place every evening from 30 March till 7 April 2016. The candidates will have 5 hours to complete their creation at the Body Painting stand of the Festival. You can see them every day for free between 4pm and 9pm. At 9.30pm every model will parade in front of the audience and the professional jury, after which an army of photographers will capture their virtuous brushstrokes on ones and zeros.
