Registrations NOW OPEN for Australian Body Art Carnivale
Organisers of The Australian Body Art Carnivale have announced that registrations are NOW OPEN for the 2012 event – taking place in Eumundi on the weekend of May 12 and 13.
Australia’s premier body art event, the Carnivale attracts artists and spectators from across Australia and overseas.
Event Manager Danielle Taylor says the event is centred on competitions in full body art (temporary paint – not tattoo) and face painting, but also includes competitions and exhibitions in wearable art, pavement art, vehicle art and photography.
“There are opportunities for artists with backgrounds in visual art, make up and special effects, textile art, street art, graphic art, chalk art and more,” says Danielle.
“Just being part of an event like this is a truly incredible experience for artists and a unique opportunity to showcase their creativity,” she says.
“We encourage artists to experience the amazing atmosphere of the Carnivale, as well as competing for over $12,000 in cash and prizes.
Danielle encourages painters, illustrators and visual artists to consider the event – even if they have never embraced the competition categories before. “It’s simply a matter of getting familiar with the paint or product and then adapting your designs to a different canvas – that of a body, a pavement or a car bonnet!”
She emphasizes that artists in the body art categories can opt to supply their own models, or use models provided by the Carnivale free of charge. Car bonnets are also provided by the event for those entering the Vehicle art competition.
Early bird fees are applicable until end of March. As an added incentive to enter early, all competitors who enter and pay in February will go in the draw for some great prizes! For body art competitors (brush & sponge, airbrush, special effects and face painting) there are three Snazaroo Prize Packs valued at $150 each. For all other competitors (car bonnet art, wearable art, pavement art, show & shine, photography) one lucky entrant will be randomly drawn for a fantastic Bundaberg Rum prize valued at $180.
Danielle says the event also offers excellent exposure for sponsors with a wide range of sponsorship opportunities on offer.
